Over years of working daily at a computer, we’ve come to see how similar it is to our human brain (or vice versa). Just as computers that have had too many different applications working at one time can get slow and boggy, and benefit from being shut down for a while, so do we humans.
We’ve learned to recognize the signs:
like a computer, our thinking and ability to execute slow way down.
Writing an article or completing a project becomes a drawn-out task; simple things seem hard and take too long. Even a nap doesn’t help. Suddenly, it dawns on us: we are burnt out and need to refresh to avoid and out-and-out crash.
So we are going to shut down for a week and give ourselves a rest. We’ll reboot on Monday July 25th…
…er…August 1st (THAT’s how tired we are.)
