Why is it that when we decide to take a few minutes for ourselves to just exhale and relax, sometimes we feel that we should be doing something? That by taking a break we might be perceived as being idle, not caring, or simply not being productive. But it’s actually the opposite. Taking a break enhances productivity, not the other way around. Sure your list isn’t done. Spoiler alert. It never will be. In fact, it’s not supposed to be. We can take ourselves so seriously, giving our “tasks” a much higher degree of importance than they really warrant in the grand scheme of things. No wonder so many people are on anti-depressants.
