Need a break?
Here are some tips on "breaking":
Enjoy mini-breaks - If you don't have the luxury of taking as much time as you want, enjoy the little breaks you do have - your lunch hour, the commute between one obligation and another, even using the bathroom! lol. Make the most of the times when you don't have obligations. Often, instead of enjoying those times we'll spend the whole time thinking about how we wish we had more time, and then the little reprieve you did have is wasted!
Indulge a little - When your schedule is full, and you find you have no time, enjoy little things that you don't always allow yourself to enjoy - a salted caramel mocha instead of your usual plain coffee, a cookie, or make a purchase for something you'll get to enjoy once your schedule clears up more.
Yoga, naps, anything to turn your brain off - When you have a lot to do, your thoughts can become so loud and overwhelming. You're thinking of all you have to do, what needs to be done first, etc. Take some time to enjoy activities that can clear your mind - yoga, or a good old nap. Even 30 minutes to let your mind take a break is beneficial.
What are your tips on handling the need to take a break when you don't have much time?
