Halting and amassing energy on a journey is not something to be afraid of what others will think of you. Before striving hard for your objective, you should assemble all your resources to make an impact as vigorous as possible. It’s a typical notion that only weaklings need to standstill and ones who are powerful keep on going progressively, pursuing their task without taking any breaks. However that’s not the case in the real world as a famous saying goes:
“A tiger also takes four steps back before pouncing on it’s prey.”
1 : Recharge
When pursuing the goal, there comes a phase when you feel that all of your energy is drained and you need to rest and recharge yourself before continuing the odyssey.
“Relax, Recharge, Renew, Restored.”
– Lailah Gifty Akita
2 : Gives Time to Analyze
It is an appreciable thing, when one gives thought to his actions rather than doing anything recklessly because results can be a lot better, if one just pause for some time and just analyse the reaction of the action.
“Simple solutions seldom are. It takes a very unusual mind to undertake analysis of the obvious.”
– Alfred North Whitehead
3 : To Get Motivation
You can use breaktime for self-motivation because motivation is what lets you keep going when odds are not in your favor. It makes you as bold as brass so that you never give up the ship and pursue your goal, no matter what.
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
– Zig Ziglar
4 : Relieves Stress
Stress is the devil from which everyone should maintain a distance, although it can build a person and ruin another. It can be beneficial if you convert negative stress into positive one but if you take it as a burden, it can destroy you to the core. So if you feel any stress, you should take some time from schedule and do what makes you smile.
“Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.”
5 : Deal with Distractions/Thoughts
When we are constantly pursuing our target, it’s very common that our mind is filled with diversified thoughts. The best way out of such situation is to take a break and spend enough time to get over them.
“I’ve trained all my life not to be distracted by distractions.”
– Nik Wallenda
6 : Get Back with Full Force
The best part of taking a break is that when you are back into action, you are brimming with energy and ready to pursue your objective without bowing to any obstacles.
“Halting doesn’t mean you have stopped, it means you are collecting energy to strive hard.”
7 : Refuel your Tummy
When you are steadily working, it’s very common to feel your stomach devoid of food, and yearn for something to refuel your belly with. It’s good to listen to your stomach as it will enhance your concentration and increase your productivity.
“I don’t go long without eating. I never starve myself: I grab a healthy snack.”
– Vanessa Hudgens
8 : Keeps you Healthy
Working continuously without any breaks is a gateway to stress, and stress leads to numerous health disorders such as obesity, depression, heart disease and many other severe diseases.
“Stay stress free, stay healthy.”
