Why You Need More Downtime

By Genevieve Cunningham

Being busy in your everyday life is an incredible way to live. It means you’re engaged and participating in the activities and joys that life has to offer. In fact, most professionals encourage a busy life to ward off mental health issues. But is there such a thing as too busy? Is it possible to be so on-the-go that your body actually needs a little downtime in order to recuperate? Take a look at these reasons why you should schedule regular downtime into your busy, happy life.

It Pushes the Reset Button

Sometimes we get on a roll. We go, go, go without any thought. And then suddenly, the going hits us like a ton of bricks, and we find ourselves completely wiped out! In order to prevent this from happening, schedule yourself some quiet time in order to let your mind and body reset. This provides the opportunity for a little rest, a chnace to re-energize, and get prepared to do it all over again.

It Can Also Keep You Mentally Well

It’s true that staying active and busy can help keep you mentally healthy, but a little downtime can do so as well. The key is to find the right balance. A little bit of relaxation time in a world full of chaos can help our minds unwind and feel relief. It helps to eliminate stress that can later lead to mental or emotional health issues. If you’re not getting any rest and relaxation at all, it’s time to make it a priority in order to balance your mental wellness for a lifetime.

It Helps You Feel Happy and Productive

If you never take any time to relax, you’re less likely to feel happy or relaxed on a regular basis. The truth is that we need this time to stop and see the progress and changes that we are making in our lives. We need this time to reset our brains in order to be more productive. If you want to feel happy and satisfied with your life, gaining some perspective through some downtime is crucial.

Don’t deprive yourself of precious downtime. You definitely don’t want to go overboard and spend all of your time on the couch or lounging around, but making time for rest is so important. Get a little rest and relaxation, and you’ll likely find that your everyday life and your perspective on life changes for the better as a result.
