Breaks are Essential...Really
by Lyn Lomasi, Write W.A.V.E. Media Staff
I know what you're thinking when I say the word "break" -- that is, if you're like me. In fact, you're not even considering it. You're just laughing. I do the same more than I care to admit. I am an admitted workaholic.
But my little dog is obsessive in the opposite direction. I am learning to take his example somewhat.
While I wont likely ever just lay around all day like Buddy does (I usually work while he's asleep in my lap), I have learned that a good break is necessary to keep my multitasking self going.
It's normal for me to run around non-stop doing who knows how many things at once. I used to think that a break would interrupt my rhythm. But thanks to Buddy I finally learned that slowing down to take a break here and there actually keeps it going. When I come back from a break I am once again full speed ahead.
Have you taken a break yet today?
"But I have a deadline. I can't take a break."
I hear you. I was the same way. Sometimes I still am - OK many times. But often I have found that stressing about the deadline and rushing through to get it done only reduces the quality of the job and causes more stress.
A good break can actually bring back the inspiration needed to get it done. So again I ask you, have you taken a break - and I don't mean by reading this post while you work in another tab. A real break.
Get to it.
