Take breaks

To solve complex problems, use your unconscious mind by first clarifying your goal and absorbing relevant data. Then take a 30-minute break to distract yourself with something unrelated, such as a walk or reading an article. In the morning, when cognitive skills are sharpest, focus on learning.

In the evening, when the mental filter is weaker, try to reexamine problems for novel solutions. Exercise not only improves health but also memory, creativity, and efficiency, making it a valuable part of your job.
