Downtime

ID-10018992Downtime: A period of time when one is not working or engaged in a planned activity.

How do you respond to the opportunity for downtime? Are you afraid of it? Do you use it well? In the world today, downtime is sometimes viewed as a luxury, rather than as the necessity it is. You know that you can’t keep going 24/7, as much as the pace of our world can try to push you to. Downtime is a necessity for your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Sometimes as much as you need and desire downtime, it is hard to stop yourself to enjoy it. You may feel guilty, uncomfortable, worried about what you may be missing or unable to unwind. It is in your best interest to value and incorporate downtime in your life. Downtime restores, rejuvenates and relaxes you.

Any downtime on the horizon for you?
