Aside from meditation, exercising for as little as 30 minutes a day can have a great impact. Though you aren’t resting your body, it gives your mind a break from stress. Exercising boosts your energy and improves how your brain performs. My form of exercise is walking—a lot.

Taking rest for granted is a common mistake that people make. They fail to rest enough or not rest at all. To rest effectively, detach yourself from anything related to your work. When it is time to rest, do not look for reasons to do otherwise.

Rest whenever you can. The key to success is not about working hard or more. It’s about working more effectively. Resting will help you to achieve success.
