Thinking time . . .

sunset1Dr Mark Pattinson, a business psychologist, says that when we’re relaxed, the brain is better at making connections . . .

“Giving the brain some down time frees up the time and energy for it to extract information from memory and play about with it, to be creative.”

So next time you’re thinking you haven’t got time to take a holiday, and you’re adding to a very disproportionate work-life balance, remember this . . . there’s a reason why your company suggests you take a one or two week holiday every now and again.  No one is indispensable.

Bon voyage!
