The need for a break is a constant – it’s always in the ‘need’ column and not often enough in the ‘fulfilled’ column …
We all need one.
Whether we get 13 minutes or if it is a long planned trip for a month away in the sun …
We all need it.
But we resist.
We do one more thing.
We start one more thing.
We’ll take a break later …
Seems a bit like getting a child to agree to take a nap!
Every time we wake from a nap or return from a holiday trip we all acknowledge, that we really needed that. It felt SOooooo good and we know deep down that we should have done it before, done it sooner, done it longer.
