comment Sitting upright in swivel chair with footrest
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about health, not personal productivity. We do have a health stack exchange, so you could check that out.

Olav - please read the Related sidebar to the right. You will see plenty of partial duplicates, and I'll close as a dupe.

comment Can Mental Fatigue be Managed through Physical Introspection?
Not sure what the question is here. Yes, feeling tired is your body telling you to rest. Your final para is wrong, staying up all night is not the success path - managing your time/performance/effectiveness is key

0x6d64 - please actually upvote, rather than write +1. It's much more useful to the writer :-) I have added my upvote.

comment Is accepting every invitation (within reason) a good way to disrupt being overly judgemental?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is very subjective, and not about personal productivity as per our site scope.

comment How can I aspire to be a polymath without becoming more reclusive?
This question is far too broad, and from your comment on feeling depressed, that may be more appropriate discussed with a psychologist or psychiatrist.

I am trying to understand what you mean by your question - and trying to understand whether it may even be a better fit over on Workplace

Francis - perfect example of describing a product that is appropriate for the task, that you are also involved with. Thank you.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about productivity, but is actually about personal preferences.

comment How to overcome or control my habit of laughing alone?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it isn't about personal productivity. It is about Psychology, but we don't deal with that here except as it relates specifically to productivity

comment Is Speed Reading Scientifically Proven to be Effective?
Speed reading, as a discipline, teaches you to read everything more quickly. To @Muz's point, it teaches you to skim faster, but it also teaches you to read every word faster, to take in paragraphs faster, and ultimately to digest information faster. The thing to be aware of is that the speed of reading and comprehension is a factor of practice. Deciding to skim and skip in order to even more rapidly take in information at a high level is going to mean you don't necessarily gain the depth of understanding, but you don't need to take it that far.

comment How can I better organize the way I take notes?
If you can add some content here as to why you recommend them, and what they provide, that would likely get you up votes. Link only answers are of low value here.

Reed - there is no single item that will do this, so no miracle substance, sorry. Garry's comment is absolutely right - also, read all the Related posts in the sidebar to the right.

comment How much of my time should I plan in advance: A day, a week or a month?
In fact, I see you have posted a bunch of answers already - some are excellent, but can you read our tour and help center pages to understand the differences between this site and other online forums, and specifically how we do not have 'discussion threads' but focus on solely Questions and Answers. Thanks.

comment How much of my time should I plan in advance: A day, a week or a month?
Hi Francis -welcome. Link only answers aren't really welcome here, so if you can edit a summary of it into your post (keep the link for those who want to read more) that would be helpful.

comment Tips to stay productive in 24 hour hackathon
This would be my approach too. 24 hours is easily handleable as a one-off, through caffeine and sugar, but it will take its toll the day after
