I'm just popping in quickly today with a message that I hope will inspire all you creative bunnies out there.
I've gotta be honest here - I haven't felt 'in flow' since I returned from Bali in November. That's 5 months of feeling unsettled, unfocued and creatively confused, but what I'm sharing in this video today about increasing productivity is helping me something severe.
If you know me, you'll know that a time management system isn't enough to get me juiced up and raring to go. It needs to be holistic. The system has to serve my soul in some way, rather than being just another anchor on my To Do list. And this, my friends, ticks all the boxes. Happy body, happy soul, happy sense of accomplishment. It's too good not to share.

Here's those suggestions I mentioned in the video, plus a few more. Make those 5 minutes magical:
- Sun salutations
- Handstands against the wall
- Dance/ shake/ get freaky break
- Roll out your hips, hammies and butt on a foam roller
- De-compress your spine on your exercise ball
- Mini sweat sesh of pushups, sit ups, burpees and squats
- Go nuts on a mini trampoline
And to take a different approach, ideas to increase productivity through relaxation:
- Mini meditations
- Child's pose
- Lay on the floor with your feet up the wall
- Place your hands upon your heart and breath into your palms
- Meditatively prepare a cup of tea
Also, here are those apps I mentioned!
I hope this hits you right in the heart as we roll into a new week, and inspires you to bring a sense of fun and super-charged engagement to the work you're doing in the world - whether it's paid or not.
And incase you need reminding, yes, you really are worthy of a five minute break every half hour. Really.
Now, I'd love you to share this video with your peeps, and leave me a comment below - do you have any other rad ideas of mindful movement we can all incorporate into our magical five minutes? Be generous, and share below :)
