Honor the Break

I’ve discovered a very surprising motivator.
.
It helps me:
.
Release weight faster
Reignite my focus
Realign myself after a disappointment
Reinvigorate the activity in my brain

.

It releases endorphins in my body and lights a spark in my neurons.
.

Do you know what it is?
.

It’s called a BREAK.  Who knew!?!?!
.
Here’s what I learned about breaks this past week.
.
If you’ve been following the FB page you may have noticed that I’m in the middle of a fitness journey. Simply working towards being the most healthy me that I can be.
.
It’s my custom to do some sort of workout every day. My typical routine is 1/2 hour of strength and a 1/2 of cardio.
.
The other day, I just felt like switching it up.
All I did was 30 minutes of strengthening yoga poses.
.
Guess what happened in the following two days.
Not only did I NOT gain weight – I actually released 1.6 pounds!

.
My body just wanted a little break before it broke it’s little plateau.
.
I include breaks in my work day too.
They’re schedule and yes .. my iPhone dings when it’s time to “Honor the Break?
.
I notice (like the last few days) when I get off and don’t take my scheduled breaks, my entire productivity wains.
When that happens, I always feel far less than satisfied at the end of the day.

.
Are you taking breaks?
Are they scheduled?
.
What can you do to include a little more break time in your life?
It doesn’t have to be long – but it does have to be an actual break.

.
I promise – you won’t lose productivity – you’ll actually gain it.
.
While you ponder that question, here’s a two minute sunset meant to help you rest and relax.
