Getting Stuff Done

Writing this as I sip my coffee, hoping that this tension headache goes soon. I think it’s to do with the weather as it’s suddenly gone very cloudy and we are expecting heatwave.

Anyway, I rediscovered the Forest app this afternoon. I’ve done some variation of the Pomodoro technique over the years but now I want to integrate exercise too.

I was inspired by The Productivityist‘s video about incorporating movement or a short walk as the 4th pomodoro and it totally makes sense. I hope it works for me, we’ll see. I’ll keep you updated.

It’s amazing how quickly 25 minutes can fly by!

    • I miss cameras. I have an iPhone 7 plus and that’s what I use for everything, website photography and videos. I might see if I can charge up my old pink Sony Cybershot and see what happens. Might be kind of fun to just take some pics and get them printed for our scrapbook.
