Is it time for a mental health day?

We’ve all felt run down at one time or another, and especially now, we start to wonder if we might be suffering from some virus or other illness. But what if the way you feel has more to do with your brain and emotions than it does with what’s going on in your body? What if you really need a mental health day?

But in doing so, you are doing harm to your productivity, creativity, and well being. You need days to get sleep, to catch up with life, and to give your brain a break. But what you don’t need to do on those mental health days is set any productivity goals. What should those breaks look like? This graphic gives some ideas.
