We all need breaks sometimes. But do we remember to take them? When we’re sitting or sleeping, are our minds still racing to solve problems? If so, let’s try to change that.
Giving yourself a mental break is just as important as giving your body a chance to rest, and it’s up to us to do it! On this tab are some thoughts on taking a break mentally from your stress. Genuine service for others helps distract us from our own challenges, and sometimes even leads to finding new approaches to dealing with them. Other times it takes doing something with our hands to really let our brain relax. I hope you can find something here that’s helpful! (Or at least that helps you feel like you’re not the only one that has a hard time turning off. 😉 )
You’ll find more break ideas on the S.M.I.L.E. tab under Isolate the Issue where I have a photo gallery of ways I’ve tried to face issues head on (which you can also see by clicking here). Sometimes doing less is more, and sometimes doing more is more because it’s distracting. See what helps YOU, just remember that no matter how busy you get (especially if you are busy!) you deserve mental breaks! Love ya!
