This week has allowed me time to rest. Time to reflect. Time for me time.
I came across a podcast (link below) where the topic is rest. The lovely ladies at Squiggly Careers discuss with author Alex Soojung-Kim Pang on why we need to rest. At first I was sceptical – rest doesn’t seem very productive – but it’s not sleep or watching TV but more deliberate breaks from work to focus on a hobby, perform some exercise (ironic that I was doing a long walk while listening) or taking a short nap.
Personally found it useful so maybe you will too! I like the concept that “Long hours are a rite of passage, exhaustion a badge of honor!”
