I am here to tell you stop. Let me say that louder: “STOP!!!!”
I am not saying that you shouldn’t continue to get things done. Get ‘er done. However, take some time to enjoy your accomplishment. Take a moment to write something you enjoy. Grab the moment and savor it with coffee. Celebrate it with your spouse.
Resting allows the soul to breathe. Taking a break allows our spirits to find something missing. Our creator created rest for us. Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. (Mark 2:27)” So don’t feel guilty for taking a run or grabbing 30 minutes at the gym.
Business has been my companion today. Now for a moment to rest my mind. Do something that I enjoy. Grab coffee with my wife. Take your coffee break. Then get back to it.
