Getting in the zone - some people call it "being on a roll." By whatever name, you benefit from higher productivity and effectiveness when you're proceeding at your best. Learn how to get - and stay - on a roll
Getting in the zone requires that you take charge of your immediate environment to the degree that you can, as often as needed. You might find that stress comes largely from the feeling of not being in control. There's something about taking control of your immediate environment that enables you to get the best from yourself, to work with your internal rhythms, and to produce superior results more easily and effortlessly. As often as possible, you want to work with your internal rhythm so that you get the best of yourself, while minimizing the wear and tear of working. For example, any time you've been seated at your desk for twenty minutes or so, it's best to get up and stretch, even if only for a few seconds. Your veins and your heart need this.
