“If you’re too busy to sit for 10 minutes you need to sit still for an hour.”
During my busiest working years, it was a source of pride for myself and many of my colleagues to pat ourselves on the back for our workaholic tendencies.
When asked how someone was doing words like slammed, jammed, and swamped were ways we stoked our egos and compared ourselves to mere mortals.
We were not only booked virtually every minute of the day, some folks actually overbooked themselves to show how incredibly important and indispensable they were.
For many of these people this way of operating had a double edge with a considerable downside to their health and their espoused important relationships.
To what degree do you include buffer/relaxation time into your daily schedule?
Consider starting with blocks of ten minutes and work your way into hours, days, etc.
