5 items you can use to give your brain a break

Anyone who lives in the modern world is guilty of multitasking. We schedule appointments during our lunch breaks, talk on the phone while walking the dog, and plan the next family get-together while cooking dinner. Not only is this physically exhausting, but it’s also mentally draining and can lead to burnout in no time.

So what can you do? Take a breath, then take a break. The world won’t stop just because you do for a few moments during the day, and it’ll do you a world of good. With proper planning, even the busiest folks out there can steal away a half-hour of downtime. Here are five items that can help you refuel and reset.

Whether you’re a fitness junkie, crafty DIYer, or someone who appreciates a good long nap, any of these products can help you give yourself the break you deserve. Even just a few minutes a day can make a huge difference to stress levels and provide your brain with the rest it needs to get back to the tasks at hand. Once you find the right hobby or activity for you, the sky’s the limit for your self-care.
