    I really do need to heed this advice. I tend to work, work, work – always accomplishing something. I enjoy reading a lot so I should schedule that in more to just relax with a book. Of course, I am always reading self-help books – LOL, but at least I would be taking some time for myself. Thanks!

      Yes, Amy when you take a bit of time off doing ‘nothing’ you’ll come back with more energy.

    Time for me? What a radical idea! We preach this, don’t we, but do we heed our advice? I work at making space in my life for me….it’s always a challenge. Yours is a very good reminder!

      I got to agree with you Paula. Specially being women we tent to give, give and give…
      We sometimes feel guilty if we take time to ourselves, but in the hindsight this is going to help everyone, us, our family and business.

    Hey there, DAMAYANTHI!

    I just wrote a blog post about 23 cutting edge tips on how to increase productivity which I “stole” from one of the training webinars in the back office of MLSP.
    I totally agree with everything you’ve mentioned in your post, I too cover these key points in my post.

    Way to go!

    Hi Damayanthi,

    Excellent piece of advice and you got me thinking.

    Aren’t we all being workoholics now? 😉 I’m spending almost all the day in front of my computer and go back to bed when I finish for the day. But since I got to know that could be risky for health, I’m taking few intervals now too.

    Mmm… But you know what, when I take more time off from my work and keep all businesses out of mind, I feel fresh when I’m back to work. It’s really true. I didn’t took more time off as I’m busy with my schedule, but I think that’d be good one to try out and see how productive I can be rather than taking few minutes of intervals.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful tip and I MUST do it and see how it’s gonna help me out 🙂

    Have a fabulous weekend over there dear 🙂

    Cheers…

      Yes, you are right when we take some time off to recharge our batteries we come back to work energized & invigorated.
