Find Time to Breathe, Be Still, and Restore Yourself

Finding time to reinvigorate and restore yourself is one of the best things you can do with your time. When it comes to efficiency and effectiveness, pausing to give yourself an energy boost is usually preferable to plowing through and working longer and harder.

You simply can’t get as much done when you are running on empty!  And a mid-week holiday such as we just had in the US (4th of July) provides an excellent opportunity to pause and regroup.

Now, you might think it odd that a Time Management Expert advises taking breaks to increase productivity.  But here’s the thing:  I believe it’s really a misnomer to talk about “Time Management.”  Time is universal, concrete, and unchanging.  One minute is one minute, no matter how you ‘manage’ it.

But what we truly can manage is ourselves!  We have absolute power to be in charge of the self that we bring to each and every one of our moments.  No matter what.

If you are a small business owner or solopreneur, for example, you might be tempted to try to work 24/7 to be as successful as possible in your endeavors.  While I know from experience that you will have plenty of tasks to fill those 24/7 working hours, you don’t have endless energy.  If you try to ‘do it all,’ the quality of your work will suffer (as will the quality of your life).  That’s no way to live.

So, when you find time to step away and restore yourself, in whatever ways work best for you, you are enhancing your ability to come back and be as productive as possible in the time that you have.  It takes courage to put down a task in order to do something seemingly unproductive, but the risk will repay you powerfully.

Try it and see!
