The idea of taking 10 minutes to recalibrate your attitude isn't a new one, but what you do with those 10 minutes is often a bit of a mystery. Productivity blog Stepcase Lifehack proposes you use each one of those minutes for a separate thought-related task to clear your head and exercise your brain.

At first glance, the list of 10 things to do within 10 minutes looks a bit daunting. Each of Lifehack's minutes is dedicated to a different thought. For instance, in the first minute you can write out one positive intention while the ninth minute is dedicated to thinking about a metaphor. The recommendation is to do this in the morning, but it can work at any time of the day. It's a simple way to break down your day and think about what you need to in the span of those 10 minute breaks most of us use for grabbing snacks. What do you spend those 10 minutes thinking about?
