Author's selfie I don’t have a topic tonight, except a brief note about being busy. During a conversation today, a co-worker mentioned not having taken a lunch break. Likewise, I found myself rushing from one thing to the next the past couple days and not taking breaks. I don’t recommend it. You may have days where that is the case—but typically the world won’t fall off the elephants if you stop and take a break. Whether it is at work, school, or in your own creative pursuits, make the time to take breaks. Sit quietly, take a walk, ready, juggle, or do something else for your own peace of mind and enjoyment. If you give yourself a chance to step away and enjoy your break you’ll be better for it, whatever you’re trying to accomplish will be better for it, and everyone you interact with will see the difference.
