The Danger in No Days Off
We’ve all heard the mentality of no days off. I was always down with it until I came to realize how dangerous it is to take this too literally.

Facing this with no sense of peace or positive energy is dangerous.
This is not to say we shouldn’t step toward your goals each day. This is to say that taking an hour or two out of our day for ourselves wouldn’t be too bad. Do yoga. Watch something on Netflix. Watch some funny YouTube videos. Go workout.
