Loved the comparison between a baby and an adult both needing a rest from stuff. Less than 30 seconds in I was nodding my head agreeing with it.
One of the things I do many days a week is take an hour and walk in the middle of the day. Just get out and walk a route that includes green space. No phone either because that's a terrible thing for rest.
I also take almost all of Friday to do whatever tasks I want and ignore my email entirely.
These two things help me get so much more done because I'm rested for the days I'm working.
