The Power of Taking Time Out

The Power of Taking Time Out

Are you someone that keeps pushing to work more, through one more weekend or one more late night to try and get caught up? Despite all the research I have read about the importance of taking time off, I still get caught up in this illusion myself. As hard working business owners, leaders, parents, and caretakers we all need regular time off to rest, relax and connect if we want to be the best version of ourselves with optimal productivity and personal satisfaction, but we don’t do it.

The common things we tell ourselves:

  • There isn’t time

  • I can’t afford it right now

  • I have too many others that need me right now

And they keep us stuck in the cycle. What we need are lifestyle pattern interrupts, things that can snap us out of the cycle of anxiety, depression, or overwhelm.
