If you’re constantly on the go, it’s easy to feel tired, stressed and in need of a little relief. Here are five simple strategies to recharge your batteries and be ready to tackle the world (again). 1. Unplug – Take a day off. In our 24/7 immediate-access culture, the idea of unplugging may seem like a far-fetched notion, but it’s not. For the truly addicted, this may cause a bit of anxiety at first, but neither the world nor you will implode because you’re offline for a day.
