Always busy? Always on the move? Never feel like you can take a break, let alone catch your breath? Sounds like you need some rest and relaxation. In our busy world where we are always on-call, always reachable, always plugged in, always tuned in, it can be very hard to completely detach from work and responsibilities and truly relax. When you aren’t working, you feel guilty that you should be working. The truth is, the work will still be there whether you stay the extra hour late or just wait until the morning to handle it. Work is an ongoing process. You complete one task and another pops up in your queue.

Setting boundaries to get your rest and relaxation are key to productivity. This downtime helps you recharge. Continuing to work on a low battery won’t make you more productive, you’ll just burnout quicker. Make some time for you, promise?
