Today and yesterday I am adding something new to my daily scheduling. Since last week I way overdid it, even thinking that I was under-scheduling myself, I have had to become more obvious and heavy handed with myself.
So now I am adding a rest after every to-do as it’s own to-do. So after “send email” task I have “rest after email” task. I have estimated times on every task. The rest time is at the very least 50% of the task time, sometimes more for particular physical tasks, like meals where it includes prep, cooking, and eating.
To my surprise this only added 5 min to my “project review and create daily schedule” routine.
It’s day two of this, and so far so good. I suppose I will know by Friday if I am resting enough.
