How do you refresh your mind when you are overloaded with projects?

    To be honest, I'm constantly overloaded with projects. Taking long pauses, traveling, or simply stepping away from work for a few days will only have negative impacts on my business. Therefore, I try to create the environment that will keep my mind fresh, and stress-free. I redecorate my office a lot whenever it starts to make me bored. I'm always listening to music I enjoy. And I profit from the weekends to reward myself. Luckily, I love what I do. So no matter how busy I am, it doesn't get to the point where I'm fed up and wanting to leave it all behind!

    Just take a break. Listen to some of your favourite songs maybe have a cup of coffee. (Without your Phone and/or Internet.) ... Simply enjoy the experience of relaxing and taking a break. : )

    By taking regular breaks you actually become more productive. (Because you're more "refreshed" afterwards.) If things are becoming really "stressful"/overloaded then consider taking a day off. Why? Because similar to the previous advice that (ultimately) makes your more productive.

    (HTH.)

    Hi Steve. The first thing I do is sleep. Lack of sleep deprives me of concentration to anything that I do. In order for me to clear my thoughts, I take an hour nap. It can't be less than that. A power nap will do to boost my energy levels and do away with stress. Secondly, I take vitamins and eat healthy foods. Last thing, I keep away from toxic people because they will only delay my progress.

    I absolutely immerse in hypnosis that's constantly rewiring the mind to push it to the limit. Amazingly, the Cosmic Master's hypnosis does just that. I don't think I can live without hypnosis of this caliber. It's like holding the keys to a vault of unprecedented trance and even 3D OBE experiences. He's opening pathways inside the mind and unveils to you nothing but the truth of your inner world and putting the finishing touch in the catacombs of the mind.

    I prioritise the most important projects and go from there. Always take breaks to refresh your mind. Long walks in the country seems to refresh my mind, always!

    Relaxing music and the sound of rain helps and sometimes coupled with a cup of coffee, hot chocolate, or even chamomile tea.

    When you got some projects to do, and you are already overloaded. Just relax your mind and put headset on your ears, then hit your favorite music. It really helps you do inspire your work more.

    Sincerely,
    Music lover.

    Hi,

    I would usually take a break every 30 mins- 1 hr. It helps you re-think and re-analyze your projects from a new perspective. Working digitally, it is important to take your eyes off the screen when taking breaks, as long exposures are also bad for your eyes' health.

    Taking a break, i stay away from the computer for a while if needed few hours,
    and i go out and have a walk or exercise or go to the gym and ..

    BIG + i also meditate. Nothing fancy, i just sit down close my eyes and focus on my breath. everything from 5-20min max. Meditation has helped a lot.

    The first thing that I will say is that anyone who is overloaded
    with projects, that is taking on too much at once.

    the next thing is to prioritize, and organize what is
    needed to be done into doable "Chunks". This is really basic goal-setting.

    When you find that your concentration is waning, and you just
    can't seem to think clearly, that is when you close your eyes
    and just scream really loud. My nearest neighbor is 1/2 mile away,
    so I have to really put some effort into it. Of course, I can't talk
    for a few days after, but my wife never minds that part.

    So, once your scream is over, and you feel better, decide
    if a short break will do to get you back on track, or if you
    need say "Screw it!".

    If you are overloaded, then short breaks are the obvious
    track to take if you need to get things done.

    The "Screw it" route is much easier, and often more fun,
    if you happen to have a bottle of wine handy, or whatever
    your "Screw it" of choice might be. Sleep, movie, paint the
    neighbor's dog green, etc.

    If you have overloaded yourself, then you had better be
    ready to learn how to recover with a series of shorter
    breaks, and less of the "I just can't take it any more"
    mental excuses that keep us from staying on task.

    1. Know your limits.

    2. Pace yourself and simplify.

    3. Stay as organized as you can.

    4. Don't let your neighbor see you, he's really
    ticked off about his dog.

    Watch a stimulating video on YouTube. The only thing you need to be careful of is not to fall into the vortex of YouTube, meaning watching video after video. If this doesn't work you may need to get away for a short while and carefully think of how you're going to attach your work when you get going again. Look at it like a boxing match and you're in between rounds in your corner, talking to your trainer, getting some ice cold water to the face and mouth, etc.

      And then you question yourself - "who's your daddy?".
