I'm already using some of these things (disabling notifications, doing pomodoro time), and absolutely agree that that helps. I stopped doing the "goal at beginning of the day/week" approach, but I'm gonna start with that. Really useful.

Didn't really have a name for the "brain fog" experience, at the end of the day, but that's a good name for it! Glad to find out that this is a known thing, and my goal for the upcoming period is to prevent that by applying these practices more deliberately.

Thank you!

Actually, I didn't completely finish reading the post, but just read 5: Clean Desk. That's even more true for me, on the digital level. I notice when my desk is filled with windows, and the browser with dozens of tabs, then I'm also stressed and anxious. Clearing everything up, closing all tabs let's that melt away!
