Wellness Tip:

Define Your Problems With Problem Statements

How well do you understand your problems? Let’s say you generally feel a bit meh about work. Or your attempts to reach our fitness goals are inexplicably failing. Problem statements can help you define your problems clearly and thus better solve them. 

Ask: What is your ideal? What is your reality? What are the consequences of your current situation? And what can you do to improve it?

Here’s an example from Ness Labs: “I want to improve my fitness (ideal), but am too tired to exercise when I get home from work (reality), which impacts my health and wellbeing (consequences). Instead, I could start walking or cycling to work (potential solution).”

Productivity Tip:

Create A Pre-Flow Ritual

You’ve heard of flow – that highly focused state where time seems to melt away. Well, there are ways to get more of it. One of them is to create a pre-flow ritual; an activity you do to signal to your brain that it’s time to get in the zone.

It might be sitting down at your desk with a cup of tea, or listening to a particular piece of music. Find a ritual that works for you, and do it repeatedly until it becomes a habit. 

Here are some more tips on creating your ritual. What gets you into the zone?

Routine Breakdown

Riley Harper, Hollywood Stuntman

Riley Harper

Stuntman Riley Harper prioritizes sleep and aims for nine hours a night. After waking, he:

  • Feeds his dogs, talks to his girlfriend, and makes coffee.
  • Sits outside in the sunlight reading Ryan Holiday’s The Daily Stoic. “Each page is a day of the year and they have little things to think about during the day. It gives me a really clean mental slate by doing it instead of scouring social media.”
  • Works out with a trainer 2-3 times a week. On other days, lifts or stretches solo.
  • Writes a to-do list on paper and uses his calendar to schedule major tasks.


Why it works:


Do you read in the morning instead of scrolling social media? It’s a small change that can make a drastic difference to your mindset. Why not try it tomorrow? 🤓
