Everyone I talk to lately is overwhelmed, and their mental load is through the roof. There are too many tabs open, too many to do’s, too many things to remember, and we are all moving too fast!
In my own experience, I feel like this leaves us working harder, feeling stuck, second guessing ourselves, constantly scanning our brain in case we’ve forgotten something – and living in fear that we have forgotten something. Hello, waking up at 3am remembering what it is!
In today’s episode of The Business Efficiency Podcast, I want to tackle 5 tips to reduce your mental load.
The first 3 tips here are really practical – about literally reducing the amount of information you are holding in your head, and some ideas about how to park it somewhere easily. I also take a look at the impact of double handling tasks, or not finishing things, which adds extra pressure to have to remember to find more time to complete them, or follow them up.
The final 2 tips look deeper into strategies to help you reduce it by adding more fun – yes taking down time is a great productivity strategy even if it’s counterproductive, or reducing the expectations we put on ourselves.
I share a few tips and examples of how these have impacted me lately.
Listen in and see how you can reduce your mental load, get organised and get that ease back.
