Friday Faves: Break Time

I’m sorry there’s no (typical) Friday Fave this week. No show for you to check out, book for you to read, or lipstick for you to try (but, oh, I do have lipstick for you to try, if that’s your thing). I was going to queue something up last night, but I was just so mentally burned out and I’ve been so busy trying to Get Shit Done that I couldn’t think of anything I’ve really been “into” lately.

So, here’s what I’m “into,” this week. Here’s my Fave for Friday and my recommendation to you all:

Taking a damn break.

We work a lot. Be it at paying jobs, or in school, or maybe even life itself is proving to be a struggle. When we’re tired, we deserve a chance to take a step back and say, “You know what? I’m just not going to worry about it.”

Of course, we can’t do this all the time (and if you feel like you need to, you may need some outside help). But, every once in a while, it’s okay to put down the reigns a day early. All that work will still be there on Monday.

Relaxing is important. It not only makes people feel better personally, but it makes them better at what they’re working on. The brain needs rest. It’s better to take a step back and come back later with a cleared mind, than to push through when the brain is thisclose to short-circuiting.

So, that’s my fave for this week. Taking a step back, relaxing, and accepting when you need a break.

Try it, sometime. You won’t be disappointed.

I love you all.

  1. That is such a good piece of advice. It took me a long time to learn the value of a well timed break, instead of working until I dropped. There is most definitely a point where carrying on working has such diminished returns that you can end up being counter-productive. As the Japanese saying goes, “when you work, work. When you rest, rest”.

  2. Excellent advice! Sometimes we get so into everything we “have” to do that life passes us by and one day we wake up and realize that we aren’t young anymore and we are just plain old weary and tired.
