Loosen Up

While working on a project, sometimes I have to stay very late at night.  
That is time when I would remind myself  to  take  some rest and loosen up. 
Otherwise,  I'll break my string.

This art of resting the mind and the power of dismissing from it all care and worry is probably one of the secrets of energy in our great men. ~Captain J. A. Hadfield 
 No matter how much pressure you feel at work, if you could find ways to relax for at least five minutes every hour, you'd be more productive. ~Dr. Joyce Brothers 
Your grip on life is way too tight. Loosen up, Smile, and enjoy the moment. ~Sonny Long
Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while. ~ Mark 6:31

Rest and relaxation is very important. We grow through tough times, stress and adversity but it is when we stop a while when we realize the lessons we've learned.

As I read on a site somewhere, don't take life too seriously. No one gets out alive anyway.

Relaxing really is important .As an OFW, we can't imagine our lives without a 2 or a months vacation and same with the daily job ,we have an hour lunch break and 15 minutes coffee break in between for relaxation.

So true! Sometimes I still need to remind myself though to take a breather.

It's a must for each one of us coz if not, continuously soaked in stress and fatigue will eventually bring us all down.

Definitely you're right. In a fast-paced digital age, we need to get some rest and relaxation. Loosen-up a bit and grab a cup of coffee or a bottle of beer perhaps.

We should know when to loosen up...to avoid wrinkles and live a happy and worry-free life.

True. We need some rest for us to become a efficient and effective person especially at work. Resting is good to keep our body healthy and fit.

This is inspirational.
I sometimes get tired of doing
things I thought I have to do but then,
I realized... I have to give myself a break to
feel as LIGHT as a cotton.

Quotes that I need to meditate on, specially this week!

Sometimes we need to be reminded not to wait to have a break-down before we learn to take down time.

It's a spreading "social disease" to wait for breaking point before one takes serious look at one's mental and physical health, and often, it's sadly too late.
