Take short pauses throughout your day.

These little breaks allow your mind to rest and recuperate. Without them, your mind will become exhausted, and you will get sloppy and make bad decisions.

Research indicates that the best way to solve a problem is to work hard on it, and if a solution can’t be found, to just let it go for a while. Do something that relaxes and distracts you, and your unconscious mind will help you find the solution.


  1. Watch your breath for a few minutes.
    The next time you’re waiting for someone or something, don’t fidget or tap your fingers. Instead, count your breaths, and feel the air moving in and out of your body.
  2. When driving, feel your hands on the wheel.
    Allow yourself to be in the moment. Turn the radio off—you don’t want any distractions!
  3. When walking, feel the sensation of your legs moving.
    Keep your phone in your pocket and just focus on how your legs are moving as you walk.
