Ever Want to Just Go Back to Bed?

Monday I took a recovery day.  It was a busy work week followed by a busy family weekend and I was tired.  It’s not that I didn’t do any work, but I called a couple of friends, went on a long walk, took extra time for lunch, and ended the day early.  It wasn’t all that different from my most tired days when I worked in corporate.

Here’s what I did notice.  I didn’t feel guilty about it.  I’ve gotten to the point where I know how to listen to my body and spirit.  I trust that the urge to work will come back.  And I know that the more I resist downtime, the less benefit I will get from it.

Last week the Center for Creative Leadership sent an article on burnout. I guess I’m right where many of us are.  If you need a break, find a way to work it in.  You will be happy you did.

Have a great week,
Claire
