It's important to make time in our schedules for some simple relaxation. We tend to be more productive and efficient when we are well rested. Failing to take breaks to release stress results in neglecting our need to unwind each day. Relaxing restores energy and prepares us for the challenges ahead. We work and play with more effectiveness when we feel awake and aware. Treat yourself to regular breaks, leaving you with plenty of energy to devote to your objectives each day.
