Taking a breather and taking the time to center yourself can make for greater productivity, and there are some specific pointers to keep in mind in order to do so. First, prior to the start of your work, you should clear your work area of unnecessary items and put everything else back in place. Second, consider making yourself a cup of coffee or tea, which can help with both focus and relaxation. Third, jot down your exact plan for the day and start making it a habit to do so daily in the same notebook. Fourth, take a moment from your work to breathe.
