Do it for yourself! | 21

DAY 21
Be attentive to your stress level and take short breaks
Slow down.  Breathe.  Give yourself permission to pause, regroup and move forward with clarity and purpose.  When you’re at your busiest, a brief recess can rejuvenate your mind and increase your productivity.  These short breaks will help you regain your sanity and reflect on your recent actions so you can be sure they’re in line with your goals.

As a type A-personality I cannot tell you how important this has become for me, to be attentive to my stress levels. This works. If you´re attentive you can pause much sooner and don´t need get stressed out at all. If you don´t know or pay attention to your own unique stress levels and capacity you don´t know when to stop before it might be to late. But this needs to be worked at on a regularly basis.
