Taking time off from your primary activities — the activities that consume your creative energy — is an essential ingredient in your wellbeing. But taking time off does not mean turning it into dead-time.
You can turn your dead-time into playful, creative time, and thus turning it into an integral part of your self-development. When most of your time is dedicated to achieving external goals, letting your mind play just for the sake of playing is not only crucial for your wellbeing. It is a critical setup if you aim to utilize your creative potential.
