Sometimes we need a mental break and not always be working on solving intellectual problems or doing something "productive".
If a TV show or song is enjoyable to you, why feel embarassed or guilty about it?
MORE IDEAS ON THIS
Going through your day and greeting your neighbors, the barista, fellow members in a gym class, etc. makes you feel more connected and creates a feeling of belonging to a community.
These "weak ties":
Reject the idea of busyness as a status symbol. Not taking time to slow down can cause burnout, anxiety disorders, and stress-related health issues.
Doing nothing can recharge us and make us more productive when we get back into it.
Let go of negative expectations and accept that we can never perfectly prepare for a challenge.
Be present in the current moment and savor good experiences and feelings.
If you try to ignore upsetting feelings like regret, it can diminish your joy or even manifest itself as physical pain.
Instead, slow down, be aware of the present moment and what sensations you are feeling, and accept how you feel while understanding that this feeling won't last forever.
This is commonly viewed as a negative experience but actually has lots of benefits, like:
When you feel stressed out, try taking some time for yourse...
Even if you've experienced something before, don't assume that you have experiened all the joy that there is to gain from it!
Novelty is often overrated.
Looking at your accomplishments positively decreases stress and encourages better habits!
Accept compliments that others give you and give yourself compliments as well.

Guilty pleasures, like junk food or trashy books, can be good for us, as long as we enjoy them in moderation.
Take a mental break and enjoy doing something that doesn't require intense intellectual focus. It will improve your ability to deal with stressors productively.
Here’s a powerful paradox: We are often most productive when we feel it least, when we’re taking a break or relaxing or doing absolutely nothing.
Resist the urge to fill every empty moment with something — “especially if you need to be extra productive or creative for a task.”
Most job postings nowadays require skill sets related to problem-solving, making it a sought-after ability that job candidates love to put in their resumes. Finding solutions is where the big money is.
Yet we design our lives in a way that is counterintuitive to problem solving.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
