Have you ever been so focused on what you were doing that you have FORGOTTEN YOUR BODY AND ITS NEEDS (drinking, eating, stretching or going to the bathroom)?
I’ve often experienced this kind of situation: working on the computer or writing an important text and not been able to move.
Until the moment I started to feel the pain in my neck, hands or eyes.
It’s still NOT EASY FOR ME TO TAKE A BREAK. There are SO MANY THINGS TO DO, AND SO LITTLE TIME!
WHEN I TAKE A BREAK:
– I become MORE PRODUCTIVE afterwards.
– Better ideas come to me.
– Not to mention that I FEEL BETTER in my head and in my body.
So sometimes I force myself. I take a break and notice what happens. I am learning…
“You don’t always have to be doing something. It’s ok to take a break and have a rest.”

I propose you to put in place the technique of the smallest possible step.
- Serenely define YOUR smallest possible step feasible for you. For example: drink your coffee or tea in silence during 5 minutes.
- Make it real as often as possible, ideally daily.
- Share in comment section below how this technique works for you.
I’m interested in your opinion.
