"Schedule work blocks on your calendar" - this one is super important to me! I block off a 4-hour chunk every day where I'm not meeting with anyone, checking my phone/email, etc."Take moving breaks." - this one too. Taking a short walk or doing some stretching in the middle of the day always helps me clear my head and I feel like my brain is better prepared to solve problems afterward.

Good for you! The work blocking took me a long time implement in my own life. So many of work cultures in tech expect people to fit their work in around their meeting schedule. It can be hard to tear away from the screen but I always feel so much better after taking a moving break.

This was a great read, thank you! :) I've also passed it along to my colleagues, as the more people do these things, the better for everyone. I particularly like the 3 mins between meetings and moving breaks - will definitely try to stick to these!
