I used to try all different productivity hacks, but nothing seemed to stick. I wasn’t aware of this ONE thing. Or I was too stubborn to admit it.


The more productive I tried to be, the more exhausted I was, and I wasn’t getting much more done. I was irritable, and simple tasks would take me longer.


That was until I stopped treating myself as a machine. I realised that how productive my days are often depends on how well I a...
