Good article. I have to often remind myself that the downtime in valuable in an of itself as well. It is too easy to tell yourself "I should be..." but that is negative and unproductive. Take the time you need and then go back to your tasks recharged and rejuvenated.

Strengthen Your Selflessness

Strengthen Your Selflessness | Sunday blues | Scoop.it

Can you cultivate compassion? Researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison seem to think so—and with good reason.

Their study, published in Psychological Science, hypothesized that compassion can be taught and boost a person’s well-being, as well as their altruistic behavior, or selflessness.
