Maybe what you need is to go back to simplicity to sitting down on the sofa with a cosy fleece jacket on and your favourite music playing as you do nothing.
In this day and age it’s almost become uncomfortable to do nothing which is why so often when we take a break from our work we end up scrolling social media, reading articles or watching videos.
But we also need to take a break from those things too because even if they aren’t productive, it’s not the same as doing nothing.
There’s this whole thing about how we should be constantly on the go, doing something, making use of every single drop of time or else it’s going to waste.
Personally I don’t think it’s healthy to never take a break and for many the ‘go, go, go!’ lifestyle just leads to excessive stress or burnout.
So, if you ever feel overwhelmed, try stopping even if it’s just for 10 minutes.
Put your phone down.
No writing, planning, researching, reading, texting, calling, editing, scrolling or watching.
It could turn out to be quite useful.
