Set 20 Minutes Aside to Do These Things

One thing that is universal with human beings is that there never seems to be enough time. The 24 hours we all get each day is not really enough right?

The real thing to consider is if you’re using your time to the fullest. When you get home after a tiresome day as an independent pharmacist at work, you may be tempted to crash out immediately, but time is precious so there’s not for you to be wasting on your sofa.

Here are some things you should set 20 minutes aside for so as to maximize your time and make things easier for you in general.

  • The project buster

It is true that some days at work can be truly hectic and you may feel you’re too tired so you can’t tackle any personal projects, but pushing them is just procrastination, when will you get them done? Try to reserve 20 minutes immediately you walk through your door to begin that project you’ve been pushing aside, it may be personal, official, or assisting a friend/family. When you do something for 20 minutes every day, you’ll soon finish it.

This will also allow you to move onto other project and you’ll be feeling a great sense of accomplishment.

  • The clear headed veteran

As a retailer, some workdays are really stressful and you may return home feeling a pounding headache. Your intention may likely be to go to bed, curl up and wake up the next day free of headache. However, most times you have a long list of things that need to get done and they won’t do themselves.

It is advisable to try some exercise or if you can’t endure vigorous exercise, you could give yoga a try. It is not challenging and also countless benefits on the body and mind. Whichever one you decide to do, set your alarm to 20 minutes time, switch off your TV, phone and any other gadget that can cause distractions.

  • The stress reliever

You might return home after a long day’s work raging with stress. As a pharmacist, you should know that this is not healthy and it is definitely not nice for the people with you. However, there are sometimes that no matter what we do to prevent it, stress still finds a way to creep into our lives.

When you get home after a stressful day, try to use essential oils and some herbs to ease your anxiety. Common ones are Lavender, Vetiver, Rose, Camomile, and Aromatherapy. If you don’t sell them in your pharmacy, you can buy them as candles that give off calming scents or as oils you can drop in your hot bath.

  • The negativity zapper

You might get home sometimes and feel somewhat down and unaccomplished. The important thing is that you shouldn’t be too harsh on yourself or negative. Write down ten things you know are positive from the rough day you’ve just lived. It doesn’t have to be all about work, it could be about someone you helped out or a healthy lunch you had.

This list will help you realize you’ve actually accomplished much more than you initially thought.
