It has been a while, a long while since I wrote a post or even visited this blog. I was taking a break, one that was only suppose to be a few weeks that turned into a few months and well... But I am back now rested and refreshed and with a notebook full of ideas for blog posts.
I just did not feel like blogging and was struggling to write something that I felt was quality and awesome enough for people to enjoy or learn from. What started as a I will only hit the snooze button one time than I will get up turned into a hit the snooze button four more times then turn off the alarm. I hate when that happens but am working on improving on that so it won't happen
again as much.
A break is a good thing it lets you get some rest and come back fresh and ready to go. Whether the break is from a level in Angry Birds or from a current project being able to set it down. If you planned enough time you will able to come back tomorrow with a new approach and new ideas. For me, I did this a lot in college mostly when I was studying architecture and had models to build. Instead of constantly having to pull all-nighters I would do some work each day and allow myself to have enough time to come back in the morning. When I did that I would always have better results and feel better about my work than the few times I had to work on the model for 20+ hours straight. I also need to take a break after I read for a while, after about an hour I stop absorbing the information and start wandering. I found what works for me and stick to it.
Do you include time in your life for breaks?
What do you take a break from?
