It’s something I read on Twitter that got me thinking. Far too often we talk about “deserving a rest” but we don’t earn rest.
Rest is fundamental to a good performance. When I coach athletes or do my own triathlon training we build in time for recover each week and after each large event. In the business world these are often called evenings and weekends.
If you are working most evenings or weekends you are probably not giving your mind time to recover so take a break. Not because you deserve it but because you need it! And because your clients need you to function at your best too.
Top athletes allow their bodies to recover and you should too.
