054E – Give Yourself a Break

Episode 054E Give Yourself a Break
Listen to this episode

When we work hard on a big project, we tend to be tired when it’s completed. You know what’s the best thing to do when you’re finished?

Take a break.

Seriously. But how often do we do that? How often do we say, “I want to, but I don’t have time”? On the other hand, when was the last time you fell asleep on the couch on a Sunday afternoon?

Both your body and your mind need time to recover after a big and/or long-term project. (Say, writing a book, or moving to Sweden!) Depending on how long you’ve been pushing yourself, you may only need a day, or maybe you need a week or longer.

What if you could believe that you could be even more productive if you took a little time off once in a while? That is not procrastination, at least not a “bad” kind. You may find that breaks – even small ones – will help increase not only your productivity, but your joy as well. When you’re well-rested, you worry less. These in turn lead to believing in yourself more, improving and increasing your positive self-talk, and seeing more/bigger accomplishments in the future.

I hope this episode helps encourage you to take a break when you need one. I think you’re going to find it’s worth your time!
