I thought the 5 a.m. club was the most absurd thing ever. Then I tried it

Today's Parent

When my coworkers told me about the “5 a.m. club” a few years ago, I thought it was absolutely ridiculous. The idea was this: You wake up an hour before your spouse and your kids and use that distraction-free time to focus on your personal well-being, with a mix of exercise, meditation and reading or learning. The point is that you’re fueling your mind, body and soul for the day.

Beating Burnout: Shannon Talbot Of Path to Presence On The 5 Things You Should Do If You Are Experiencing Work Burnout

Medium

Unplug to recharge: Just like our electronics need to be fully powered down from time to time to work better, so do we. We live in a culture of go, go, go, where we feel we must respond to all emails and texts instantaneously. This leaves us thinking that we can never disconnect for fear we’ll miss something or get in trouble at work. Whether you put an out of office on or communicate with others when you unplug so they don’t disturb you, find a way to completely disconnect. Your body and mind will thank you.
