    Working with your circadian rhythm for better productivity

    Working with your circadian rhythm for better productivity

    In this episode I talk about circadian rhythms and how you can adjust your routine to work with your rhythm. Inspired by the book When by Daniel Pink I talk about whether you are a lark or an owl and that there is a time of day to focus on different tasks. I explain what the term Nappuccino is and how by having one it can help you to be more productive. What is your routine and how can you understand your body clock to make it work better for you.

    Are you always competing with time? And why bucket lists don’t work.

    Are you always competing with time? And why bucket lists don’t work.

    Your competition might be the local sports team, the person next to you on the racetrack or even a colleague. But I am not a competitive person, but I have come to realise for many of us our competitor is time. In this podcast I talk about how we are constantly rushing to achieve things on our bucket list. This bucket list of achievements is all too common with long unobtainable things to study, travel, visit, grow and do. Are they healthy or should I just calm down?

    How to find a healthily work life balance with Helen Clarke

    In this episode Emily speaks to Helen Clarke, a Managing the juggle listener and secondary school English teacher who was at risk of burnout. She excelled up the career ladder and was on track to achieve even more. But the loss of a close family member changed her mindset completely. Through tragedy she discovered something which she’d never considered before and found she had a passion for it! She juggled her full-time job with re-training and took the brave move to step down the career ladder in her teaching career and follow her new passion. 
    She has now found a heathy work life balance whilst continuing with her hard worked career but also discovering new opportunities and passions. Helen shares her story and gives some tips on how you can find a healthy work life balance as well.

    How to find motivation when you really need it

    How to find motivation when you really need it

    This week I am talking about motivation, I investigate the different types of motivation and how by understanding motivation you can apply it to your life and find motivation when you really need it. Are you extrinsically or intrinsically motivated? I share what keeps me motivated and how I am more productive because of this motivation. I also look into some tools which will help you to find motivation to stay productive.  
    I am currently doing my master’s thesis in Student Motivation, so this podcast is killing to birds (as the saying goes). I realised what I was reading applies to everybody’s lives, so I share some theories behind motivation and tips and tricks to keep you motivated.
