Whether we find ourselves setting the pace for the race, or just trying to keep the pace, we should always find time to give our mind and body a little rest.
Some of you have shared that these past several months have given you a chance to slow down, get back into forgotten hobbies, or start new ones.
Spending more quality time with friends and family.
And others have shared that they have never been busier and that their mental stress and physical fatigue have never been higher with little or no time to take a breather.
In a bigger, faster, harder, go go go, world, sometimes we get so wrapped up in trying to keep up, we forget to take care of ourselves along the way. We schedule more meetings or calls than we can fit into our day.
We squeeze more work into our already jam-packed weekends and try and justify it by saying that it “needs” to get done. Or we try and fool ourselves into believing that we are the only ones who can do it, denying our mind and body the rest we need to perform at our best.
