When we have a passion and are on fire with a belief it is difficult to slow down and pause. We want to just Go, Go, Go! But we must all remember that we are human and we need to take breaks. Our hearts and minds might be going 100mph but our bodies need a rest and a break to be productive and on top of it all. There is a reason that breaks are mandatory on the job. All the research I have read says that if employees do not take a break after 5 hours of working productivity drops. Take a break, a breather, a lunch, talk to a co worker, go for a walk, eat a snack, let your body rejuvenate and your passion will be better served.
