We are all so busy. There is always so much to get done. It is very easy to get discouraged/upset/disappointed when we are not able to be as productive as we need to be! My advice to anyone who needs to get things done: set a timer! You can do anything for 5 minutes! Load the dishwasher, answer work emails, pull weeds, put away laundry, etc. You get the idea!


There are many ways that a setting a timer can help increase our productivity:

  1. 😎 It helps us to stay committed to a single task. I am the QUEEN of multitasking! Just ask Michael Robbins…But knowing that the timer is set for 5 minutes, I am able to focus and commit to the task at hand. (P.S. I have something that has a great amino acid to help increase focus!)
  2. 😎 It helps us to not get distracted. I am less likely to open those notifications, or answer that phone call, if I know that the timer is only set for 10 minutes.
  3. 😎 Using the timer can help to build momentum. As we see the results of being productive, we are more willing to keep going and reset that timer and do more!
  4. 😎 When you set a timer with kiddos, they are able to help at their ability, as they know that with a timer set, there is an end in sight. It will not last forever!

I am personally much more pleasant and happy when I have accomplished multiple tasks in a day. See what you can get done today! Go set your timer, and let us know what the results are!
