Tired? Frazzled? Wanna get away? You may not need a vacation, sabbatical or extended anything. You may just need to push the reset button.
Like most constantly running machines, you have a reset button. You may have forgotten it’s there, but it’s there. Everybody has one. Sometime or another we all need to push the reset button.
It’s available every day. The problem is, we forget to push it. Or we forget we can push it. Or we forget it exists. But make no mistake, there IS a reset button.
It’s easy to push, too.
There are things you can do today, at work, school or home that can take the edge off your pace and give you a break. None of them take more than a few minutes. None of them are impossible, or even hard for that matter – but they’ll make a huge difference in your perspective. Do them often enough, and you’ll find yourself in a better place, in less need of an extended getaway.
Here are some doable ways to push the reset button today, right where you are. Try one or more of these throughout the course of your day:
- Take a deep breath
- Look away from your computer screen
- Get off the phone for 3 minutes
- Take a break
- Leave the room
- Sit quietly
- Stare at the ceiling for a minute
- Read a scripture
- Take a walk
Do it. Push the reset button. I dare you.
Put these to use and let us know how they’re working for you.
