Interested in learning how to boost your energy and avoid burnout?
My girlfriend texted to ask me if I wanted to go for a walk first thing in the morning on a day I had childcare and lots to do.
“I don’t have time,” was the first thought that popped into my head.
But then I remembered that I had written a book about doing less.
I also remembered that though we’ve been programmed to believe that the way to get more done is to pack as much as possible into our days, the truth is that well-timed breaks actually help you boost your energy and avoid burnout.
So I went for the walk, even though I was tempted to cancel because my little gremlin mind told me walking with a girlfriend would mean I wouldn’t get the things done that I needed to.
You know what?
I came home feeling refreshed and energized. The fresh air, combined with my friend’s whip-smart insights on life, set me up beautifully for a focused, engaged day.
I sat down at my desk feeling vibrant, and I got what I needed to do done with zero issues, feeling grateful I’d taken the time to connect with someone and move my body.
Here’s the thing:
Packing as much as we can into our days is not the way to get more done.
Taking strategic, well-timed breaks is.
