We do our best work when we’re not stressed to the max. It’s the times we have balance in our lives that we shine. The best ideas often come to us when we’re taking a break – like while we’re working out or in the shower. It’s no coincidence. Spending too much time working without a break is not healthy for us. So how can we change our behaviors? Start small. Take a one minute break whenever you think about it. The first step is building awareness. If you even begin to think of taking a break, as a possibility, that is a wonderful sign. Try these small one minute breaks as an experiment. See what happens. What do you notice, what do you feel? This is your first step towards being the best you can be.
