Things You Can Do With 15 Minutes To That Next Meeting

Sometimes a meeting has finished early at you have 15 minutes to the next one. Or you have just finished some key tasks quicker than you thought, and have some time before that next meeting. If so, how can you maximise that time? Well, here are a few thoughts:

  1. Have a glass of water

  2. Stretch those legs

  3. Speak to someone

  4. Listen to music

  5. Read an article

  6. Check out the mortgage news

  7. Reply to just one email

  8. Clear the clutter

  9. Plan tomorrow

  10. Doodle

Let's take a quick look at each of these...

Have a glass of water In the past, we would all be staring at a glass of water in a meeting. But now, with so many online, people don't really drink during a virtual call. Drinking water is the easiest way to stay healthy. If you become dehydrated, your energy levels drop. So go grab a glass of water. Stretch Those Legs After water, moving is the next most important thing you can do. It's good for the blood flow and helps general wellbeing. So stand up, move and go for a quick walk before that 3pm meeting begins.

Speak To Someone If you are in the office with that 15 minutes to use, why not have a quick chat with someone. You never know, it might just make their day. Listen To Music For me, music energises me. It may not be the same for all, but just take the time to recharge with that glass of water and your favourite song. Maybe one you can dance to, to keep you moving.

Read an article on your favourite website. Or why not use your 15 minutes to come back to these Snackable articles and read more of them.

Check out the mortgage news It might now sound the most exciting thing to do, but keeping up with the mortgage market news might not be a bad idea. Reply to just one email If you have had plenty of water and just had a walk, use the time to reply to just one email - that one you have been putting off.
