Life doesn’t always mean pushing ourselves to achieve or produce, sometimes it means resting and relaxing.
Imagine if you gained a few productivity points by resting and catching your breath. What might that do for you at work or in your relationships?
Imagine that taking some down time allowed those ideas to percolate and come out better. Maybe your emotions got in the way and resting allowed them to shift and see the situation more clearly.
You can see how this applies on the campaign trail, pulling an all nighter or during an argument with a loved one.
If you work within a system that glorifies workaholism, please work to change the system, too.
