Happy New Year. May 2016 be a productive year for everyone.
This year, while we focus on achievement and accomplishments, it is also important to remember to take regular, periodic breaks from work. These pauses are essential to being productive, creative and innovative. A respite from work refreshes the body and the brain. A brief rest is an effective ‘pin-prick’ to burst that stagnant bubble and clear the mind.
Rejuvenate your energy and restore your focus – step away from your work area and engage in a calming, pleasant activity. Have a cup of coffee with a friend, read, write, knit, crochet, listen to music. . .
In our modern, technology-filled society that pressures everything and everyone to be available 24/7, it behooves us all to pause and reflect on the benefits of taking a time-out.
