|I don’t have a desk, so my coffee table is a makeshift workspace.|
Some of my favorite healthy snacks are:
- Light popcorn.
- An apple and/or berries.
- Laughing Cow light cheese wedge with crackers.
- Carrots and hummus.
- Trail mix.
- Brookside dark chocolate-covered pomegranate pieces.
|I can use my Target holiday mug year-round, right?|
- Green tea.
- Oolong tea.
- Earl Grey black tea.
- Bigelow “Constant Comment” black tea.
Most people I know prefer to work in silence, but I just can’t do it. Complete silence freaks me out a bit, so I have to have some kind of background noise. This usually comes in the form of a movie that I’ve seen a hundred or more times. This way, I have some noise, but I don’t have to pay close attention to it or anything. It’s just there!
- Pirates of the Caribbean.
- The Sound of Music.
- Harry Potter.
- Spaceballs (yeah, I know, weird).
- any of my favorite Disney classics.
Lastly, I try my very best not to overwork myself too quickly. But let’s be real, that’s harder than it sounds. I do well when I observe the 50/10 rule: for every 50 minutes of work, take a 10-minute break. You’d be surprised how much of a difference those 10 minutes can make! It forces me to take a breather, rest my mind and prepare for my next task.
