I'm the type of person to get overwhelmed even if I only have a few things on my plate. I've had plenty of days where I feel like I'm just going through and marking off items on a checklist. However, when we begin to develop this mindset on a daily basis, it can prove to be rather unhealthy as it forces us to become absorbed in our work.
If you need to take a break for a little while due to stress, please do so. In fact, you owe it to yourself. Considering doing this will not only help you feel better physically, but it will also improve your mental state. I know from personal experience that it can be very easy for our minds to dwell on incomplete objectives.
What are some of your favorite things to do when you have all the free time in the world? Are there any hobbies that you can think of off the top of your head that you haven't spent time investing in in a while?
You don't necessarily have to craft or create something, either. Sit down and listen to a few of your favorite songs, or even venture into reading stories from some of your most beloved authors. I've come to realize that taking walks and riding my bike both help a lot, too.
Whatever it may be, don't forget to carve time out of your busy day to spend it doing what you love to do.
