“Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself,
your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.” – Ralph Marston
All Work and No Rest makes for a very imbalanced life.
More and more people in the workplace (and personally) are recognizing the importance
of taking breaks to refresh and renew themselves.
And, I don’t mean taking a ‘coffee-break‘, cigarette break, or vending machine break (unless it has healthy food)!
To truly feel rested and refreshed, we may need to break from routine!
Try something New – Different!
Or Renew a practice that you’ve abandoned.
I teach a lot of Mindfulness programs in the workplace. And one of the comments I frequently here are how much more refreshed people feel afterwards.
Sitting quietly, focusing on the breath, the moment, and letting everything else go, is a wonderful way to renew your mind, body and spirit!
We need to give ourselves time to refresh ourselves so we can then decide what we want to ‘get back to work’ on.
Some of the things I’ve decided to Renew this year are:
- Monthly Running Races (just did my January 5k)
- 365 Days of Giving (You’re Invited to Join our Facebook group)
- M&M’s (That’s how you may have gotten here)
- Self-Care Practice (Check out Welcome Home at the Global Truth Center)
- Fitness Regime (workout 5-6 days/week)
After a holiday break, which included lots of rest and reflection, I am definitely ready to get back to work!
Work on my Goals. Work on my Business. Work on Myself!
