The Poison of “No-Breaks”

We are not meant to work 8 to 12+ hours straight without stopping. At some point, our brain is going to stop functioning at its full capacity because of pure exhaustion and the build-up of toxicity. This constant Go-Go-Go mentality that so many of us have embodied can lead to stress, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, burnt out, as well as poor emotional tolerance. Taking a break is going to allow you to give your mind and body a well-deserved reset. It doesn’t matter if it’s 5 or 10 mins, or 30 mins, or an hour. A break is a break. Start small and increase based on the level of pressure you are under. The rule of thumb is the higher the pressure – the longer the break. Step away from your work and technology (yes, that includes your phone 😉). Go outside and breathe. Recharging for a moment is going to help reduce all of those negative feelings you may be experiencing as well as improve upon your overall happiness and wellness. A quote to reflect on:
To see what is right and not do it is a lack of courage. Confucious
