    I’ve been meaning to try the Pomodoro technique! I’m just hesitant as keeping track of the time working & time for breaks would stress me out! haha

    I love Zen habits but I’ve never tried the Pomodoro Technique before. Will definitely look into it.

    These are amazing tips. I already try to incorporate doing the “worst first,” but I’m going to try out the 3 MITs and the pomodoro technique this week. I am the queen of writing a super long, daunting task list on Sunday night for the week and feeling like “Great! I know exactly what I need to do this week!” But then (like you said) I get overwhelmed and don’t even get half done. I think I can do this one, but I’ll really struggle with being distraction-free; that seems like a near impossibility sometimes.

    I do not manage productivity and stress well! I find that if I’m stressed (ie. worried) about something, it’s hard for me to concentrate on literally anything else. But what I’ve found from the times when I have combated worry with productivity is that I actually get more done and end up forgetting about my worries in the meantime. It’s one of those things where I just have to START, and then the rest gets easier.

    Loved this post!
