Guilt is an informative emotion

It’s often a sign we’re not acting in accordance with our values.

The guilt of not working stems from two places: 

  • From the fact that wevalue working hard
  • We consider the opportunity cost of our actions whenever we’re not working—what we could be doing instead of what we are doing. 
Don’t let this guilt of not working prevent you from taking a much needed break.
