Counter guilt around break time

Reflect on how you need to recharge—and, more than that, how doing good work depends on it:

  • How your focus will benefit from this attention break.
  • How many great ideas come while your mind is wandering (when you’re not working or focused).
  • How often your mind considers and plans for the future while you’re stepping back.
