I’m thinking about taking a break…

TAKE A BREAK!

“A good rest is half the work.”
— Yugoslav Proverb

Strong work ethic? You can still justify taking a break. In fact, we NEED to take breaks — regularly and frequently. Why? WE WORK MORE EFFECTIVELY WHEN WE DON’T WORK SO MUCH.

Rest periods and vacations break our work routines. They help SHIFT OUR THINKING from its habitual, stuck patterns. They create the SPACE FOR ENERGY AND CREATIVITY to flow. They give us TIME FOR REFLECTION, so we can step back and look at what’s happening in our lives with greater detachment. We become more sensitive and aware.

And finally, we are stronger when we BALANCE DOING with BEING. All work and no play throws our life out of balance and endangers our health. Our bodies and minds need sufficient rest for recuperation. This is critically important with the level of stress in our lives these days.

“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.”
— Sidney J. Harris

“I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently.”
— Ernest Hemingway
