Sometimes, when we are charging forward at full speed, we need to stop and take a breath. When we are on overload, we don’t take time to recharge or refresh. There are times that I have had to stop and reassess where I am and what I’m doing. I need to take time to refresh and unplug from everything.

When we get so focused on something that we can’t see what’s around us, we need to stop and smell the roses, so to speak.

We can get so entwined in our work that we get to the point that we can’t see clearly and get out of focused. We can even get to a place where we get burned out or feel like we are in bondage.

Here’s a suggestion. Turn everything off: phone, computer, laptop, tablet, TV, radio, and any other device you may have that can be a thief of your time and focus. Get a way, even if it is just going to a park for the afternoon. Can you get out of town? If you can, do so. You need to be recharged or refreshed.

What will this do for you, it will help you clear your mind so you can get back in the game.

Put it in your calendar to take mental breaks on a regular basis. Go to a park, a botanical garden, theme park, any place that is our of your norm so you can get refocused. Who knows, you may get some great ideas that propel you to the next level. The main thing is that you refocus and spend some quiet time by yourself or your significant other. You owe it to yourself.
