Relax + Reset: Why it’s important to reset each week

By Samantha Flavell



Hello everyone, and welcome to Sam’s Corner. My name is Samantha Flavell, and I’m a marketing associate here at Boone Logic.


Sam’s Corner is a place in our monthly newsletter for me to share a little insight, a few tips, and a bit of my personality with you all to hopefully enjoy and learn from.


Today I want to talk about why it’s important to take time to reset. If you follow Boone Logic on social media, you may have seen our Sunday reset posts. These posts talk about different ways to reflect on what you’ve achieved and prepare for the week ahead usually by taking time for some form of relaxation. 


Now, if you’re anything like me then sitting still can be your worst enemy and you’d much rather spend any free time you have getting ahead on work you need to do. Whether that be for your career or just chores and tasks around your house and in your personal life.


Here’s the thing though. Sometimes doing less is the most productive thing you can do.


Humans aren’t designed to constantly be going. Our bodies need rest and if we push ourselves to the limits not only are we making unhealthy choices for our physical and mental health but the quality of our work will suffer as well.


When you’re stressed or trying to cram too many tasks into too little hours in the day you’re bound to make mistakes that in the long run will require more time and attention from you as well as likely cause you to feel unmotivated and become hard on yourself.


You don’t need to go to a yoga retreat or spend a full day without screens (although for some people those are great options!) Relaxing and resetting looks different for everyone but it’s important to find what works best for you to give yourself a break and allow your brain to break away from the task at hand and focus on a different creative outlet.


This opportunity to form new creative connections may also transfer later to your work and help boost your innovation and problem-solving. 


Burnout is very real and it is much harder to come back from burnout than it is to properly just take care of yourself along the way.


At minimum, it’s important to make time each week to relax, reset, and recharge but there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Your body and your mind will tell you what you need. If that is to take one day a week to focus on hobbies and relax, do that. If you need to take time each day then do that instead. 


Find what works best for you and make it a part of your regular routine. It may take a while to adjust your mindset and take those breaks but DO IT. Your mental and physical health will thank you and your work will flourish from it too.
