Just like we reboot our computers and refresh sites so that they work better, similarly, our body requires frequent rest start and shut off. Wouldn’t we be better if like computers we could simply shut off or log out? Most of us don’t know how to relax and take time off. Our minds are always racing, and phones are always buzzing, even while having a nice holiday with our families, we are constantly worried about our work. Instead of enjoying the bounties of nature and the comforting company of our families, we are either checking our emails or mentally concocting a list of work to do. We have not learned the art of relaxing ourselves. Even with time on our hands, we don’t know how to shut off our system.The break helps you to understand yourself and priorities and gain a new perspective on life. Sometimes you need to leave everything that you are doing and simply get some air. It's imperative to have a little me time and clear your mind of all the clutter.  Sometimes more than anything it’s the break that we need to reboot our system.
