Let’s be honest. Social media activity can get a little messy. You’re posting links, answering questions, and trying to keep up with the latest changes to Facebook and Twitter (and all the other platforms out there).

All you productivity buffs have probably heard this before: You should be taking breaks regularly to boost your productivity. All the same, I’m terrible at breaks. I often feel guilty when I stop working to rest, which often makes it very difficult for me to truly relax. According to a recent survey by Staples, I’m not alone in feeling this way. Apparently, 1 in 5 workers feel too guilty to even take breaks. And how I spend my breaks…

What you do outside of work can improve performance and productivity at work. Ever felt revitalized working on something that’s completely unrelated to work? I’m often surprised by how much I can get done after doing something fun that has nothing to do with my job. Whether it’s learning a new language, taking new photos for Instagram, or even cooking – I suddenly feel refreshed and ready to tackle my to-do list. Giving yourself a…

There’s a lot to learn and it’s easy to make mistakes (we’ve made a lot) regardless of whether you’re just…

As news gets faster and the amount of content we consume increases, the idea of content overload is becoming a familiar problem for many of us. With so many sites, networks, and…
