A Simple Intermission
I personally think of an intermission as a long vacation on a beach, a good book, family and lots of free time. This past weekend reminded me that there is such a thing as a "power intermission." Usually my Saturdays are filled with "To Dos" around the house. I usually end the day physically exhausted and pay for it the next day.
This last Saturday I did something different. I spent a few hours in the morning doing a few odd jobs but then our family got away. We spent the afternoon at a cabin in the mountains. We watched a movie, threw some burgers on the grill, I took a nap, read a book and played a board game with my wife and daughters. Sunday was relaxing as well. I was very surprised what a difference it made on Monday. I had more energy. I was rested. I felt mentally prepared for the week. A Power Intermission! It worked for me... it might work for you.
