Downtime Wed, Apr 29, 2015
Good morning everyone!
Life can certainly be busy, but do not overlook the importance of downtime.
Researchers and neuroscientists such as Dr. Rex Jung, a clinical neuropsychologist and assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of New Mexico have found that small periods of inactivity help us be more creative and maintain our well-being. Also, in a study performed by the Energy Project, a consulting firm that focuses on worker productivity and engagement, they found idleness helps reduce one's heart rate, promotes better digestion, and fosters more positive moods.
Taking a walk, sitting and allowing your mind to drift, or letting your mind wander during a repetitive task like washing the dishes are a just a few examples. See what works best for you!
