I did something different today. After work, I did nothing. Absolutely nothing. It was better than I could’ve even imagined.
Now, this doesn’t mean I didn’t accomplish all of my goals for the day. I did. However, when all of the goals were complete, it was time to take a break.
What break did I take? I lounged in my living room with my family and watched Christmas movies all afternoon. That was a lot of fun.
One of the things I’m having to remember as a part of my 100 Day Strong is to build in times of rest. When you have a list of things you are trying to achieve it is easy to forget to have some downtime.
There’s a balance. I’ve been doing well keeping that balance, but it is something I still want to be cognizant of. I want to make it through these 100 days excited to get to the next 100 days.
If you’ve been covered up, take a minute. Find some time to rest. Give yourself a break. You’ll be glad you did.
