Try and relax after work too – relaxation boosts our immune system and recharges our batteries. This in turn enables us to sleep better and makes us more effective at home and work.
It is the more relaxed people who are more likely to notice chance opportunities, even when they are not expecting them. This ability to notice such opportunities can have a significant and positive effect on the person’s life. Anxious people tend to have a very narrow focus of attention and so fail to notice the opportunities that surround them.
Taking time out also gives us the chance to plan and dream what we would like the future to hold.
