This is so true. I sometimes have to force myself to take a break. Today was one of those days.
I will be writing about this and linking to your post. Thanks for sharing.

So true Kristen. It’s important and counterintuitive! Downtime feels like a luxury that comes after we do the work, but in truth it’s the fuel that supercharges us and our work. I too made a point of devouring fiction this summer and it felt like a total indulgence 🙂

You know, Kristen, I think that’s always the hardest thing is to take down time. I’ve begun to schedule it into my calendar, so today, my wife and I took a day trip. We didn’t do anything important, we drove down Rt. 62 in Massachusetts, which is literally in the country. We saw a reservoir or two and stopped at a farm and bought an eggplant, a cookie, and some Eggplant Parmesan that was frozen solid (and it was still frozen solid when we got home!), and ate lunch at a restaurant that we happened upon. But we mostly enjoyed the drive in the trees and no traffic! When we returned home, we felt rested!
Another thing that I know about Mondays is that it is usually hard for most folks to get back into our writing routines…so I began Monday Morning RED HOT Teleseminar Series to help writers be inspired to get back to work. The interviews that I do for this series are all author journeys. If you’re interested, the Website is http://publishwithconnie.com/mondaymorning.
Schedule that down time! You deserve it! Oh…and thanks for my Kindle in 30 prize of a Ninja and Flash Drive!! Love the new logo!!

My husband comes to me, and says, “Honey, you need to go do some quilting.” Sometimes he will even take things out of my hand and walk me to my sewing machine. LOL!
HE sees that I’m stressed long before **I** recognize it in myself… apparently like your husband, Kristen.
