Teach yourself to rest, to pause, to regenerate. When you want to quit, take a break and rest. See if your perception changes after you recharge. Our lives become very busy and it is easy to transform into “human doings” rather than our natural state of “human beings.” Practice just being. Try these different types of rest next time your mind, body and emotions need some breathing room.

  1. Allow yourself to be unproductive

  2. Give yourself permission not to help others while you recharge

  3. Take time away to your favorite spot

  4. Schedule time alone for yourself

  5. Disconnect from electronics and unplug from social media

  6. Connect to art, nature and animals

  7. Eat your favorite foods

  8. Take a break from responsibility or decision making by delegating or asking for help
