Life revolves in circles – your phone rings, and you’re booked for yet another important meeting. A bright Sunday morning that you cannot enjoy because you have household errands to attend. Or, your professor has assigned a surprise assignment that may cost your well-deserved weekend – this never stops, and you’re a part of it.
Do you remember the last time you took a pause – a downtime from your never-ending routine life? A break that helps you get to relax, revive your jumbled thought process, and just be yourself—a pause where you can only be yourself and connect to your inner-self.
Taking a moment to pause is about being free from the worldly chores, resuscitating your inner-soul, feeling connected to nature, and self-care. The renowned motivational speaker, Dr. Roopleen, explained it as:
Whatever phase of life you are in, make time to pause and reflect where you are heading towards. It is a good time to insert a comma now and realign yourself to your inner self before your life ends in a full stop.
Pausing your unstoppable life has several associated benefits:
- Living around-the-clock is impossible, and taking a necessary pause keeps you from total exhaustion.
- It helps you reevaluate your priorities and future goals.
- You will have a fresh perspective of life with a clearer vision.
- A well-timed pause enables you to relieve stress and anxiety.
Taking a break is not always about having a dream holiday. Break from technology, being more connected to nature, reading your favorite literature while sipping on your favorite drink, and having a regular self-care routine also fall in the same ambit.
