Today’s tip ties into the theme of adding daily joy to your life. Just as important is the need to take regular breaks, especially at times when you think you’re far too busy to pause:
I tend to forget that working on projects at the computer for ten hours straight leaves my body aching and my mind dull.

And remember, when you think you can’t take a break is when you absolutely need one the most.
