Becky and Diana explore the value of pausing as a tool for productivity.

  • Pausing allows for time to reflect, regroup, and assess.
  • A Pause = Planned Procrastination.
  • Thoughts are like seeds and need time and space to grow.
  • A pause is a temporary stop.
  • Taking a pause allows you to address situations from a logical place instead of reacting from emotion.
  • You can pause in many ways: play a game on your phone, take a walk, look out the window, take deep breaths. It’s about separating so things look different when you reconnect.
  • You need to make decisions at your own speed, not someone else’s.
  • To help yourself pause and be in the moment, begin identifying things in your surroundings, and name what you see (down to the carpet and your clothing). It will ground you in the present.
  • When you pause due to stress, ask yourself, “Where is this coming from?”
