A coach can help you get your priorities straightened out, review the origin of the issues, and help you come up with an action plan.

Good quality sleep is essential for productivity.

No less than 7 to 8 hours a day and exercise regularly, at least three times a week.

Alternate moments of high demand for focus and concentration, with breaks and recreation (if possible outside the work environment).

Lower stress levels by practicing meditation, yoga, listening to podcasts that raise your motivation and self-esteem.
