Keep in mind that guilt isn’t always an indicator that you’ve done something wrong. Sometimes, guilt means you’ve finally done something brave and out of the ordinary. Other times, the guilt you feel is disguised as the sense of accomplishment or responsibility for the actions you’ve taken. It leans toward the feeling of guilt because it’s attached with fear; otherwise, it would feel like pure confidence and relief. Don’t allow that lingering guilt to engulf you. Learn why you’re feeling guilty and what’s causing you to feel such.
We need to take breaks because we are not meant to be in constant work mode for the rest of our lives. Resting shouldn’t be something you need to be guilty of. When you rest, you’re paying attention to your physical and mental health which is necessary for work. During times of relaxation, your mind and body are restoring energy and relieving the negative toxins that have been accumulated from hours of work.
Resting isn’t some kind of excuse to lay off workers and slack off, it’s a necessary process to mitigate the effects of stress and anxiety. If you have clearer, healthier physical and mental health, you’re not only more focused on work but are also quicker to resolve problems should they come. You’re on your feet ready to seize the day, not cranky and exhausted from having fewer hours of sleep.
