Your Success Freaks are growing through a lot of changes lately. With a new outlook, new priorities, and a new format, we are re-evaluating how we do things and are focusing on what is most important for us at this time. This includes Rebooting, Rebuilding, and Recharging. That right, it’s time to Hit Refresh and rediscover the importance of Recess in our business and personal lives.
Busy People, this episode is for you! There is always work to be done. Always something getting in the way of you recharging your creative batteries. You need to learn to be okay with taking a Recess. In this episode of Success Freaks, Mordant & McFall share why this is so important and how to go about taking enough of break to come back strong and swinging for the fences.

The importance of having a Recess
What happens when Work is Fun or Re-energizes you?
Contrasting Hard Work vs. Workaholic and Recess vs. Being Lazy
Creating Recess in your Life
TIPS FROM IMPORTANCE OF A RESTING PERIOD
Set aside 5-15 minutes of You time. If possible, schedule/plan this—make it a part of your routine so it does not fall by the wayside.
Find/create a “quiet space” where you will not be disturbed and with minimal unwanted distractions. Meaning, if your idea of rejuvenation is playing with your kids, don’t exclude them just because Mordant says you need to set up a daily Fortress of Solitude—they are the kind of “distraction” you want. This isyour time, your recess—cultivate it to fit you and your needs.
Be patient with yourself and your process. Trying to settle down enough to let those everyday worries you so tightly hang onto go and actually recharge a bit might make you a little bored…restless…crazy at first. That’s just the body and your monkey mind’s way of resisting what’s good for it. This will pass as you relax into your resting period each time.
Whatever you do during this time, make sure it is something you enjoy, something that revitalizes and leaves you refreshed.
(or 4.5) Have Fun! Remember, the happier you are, the more successful you will be at whatever you are doing in life.
Create a space for Recess in your life.
