I’m back from my sabbatical week. I take off every seventh week as a sabbatical. It’s completely changed my life.

I sometimes think, “Nah, I don’t need a sabbatical…” but once I give myself the opportunity to rest, I realize just how much I needed it.

When you get so used to pushing, pushing, pushing, you lose touch with what your body needs.

I’m a big fan of hard work. That’s why I’m a big fan of rest. Rest enables hard work without burnout.

If you don’t schedule rest, it won’t happen. You must schedule rest on a recurring basis. Create a “Sabbatical” event on your calendar and set it to repeat.
