Battery Recharge

May 26, 2009

As I stared down at my camera battery gleefully soaking up more energy from its charger cradle, I realized we are a lot more like machines than we realize.

We need to recharge our batteries like everything else. Taking time off is as important as breathing because it helps us do it better. It needn’t be just another item on your to-do list (unless lists are your thing). It can be a liberating experience to drop the cloak of responsibility and to step into a robe of relaxation.

If our cell phones, cameras, and hybrid cars need it, so do we!

    Love that metaphor! Yes, the pauses throughout the day are our own personal recharge.
