Think of it this way: you love your spouse (or your child or job), but you don’t want to spend all of your waking and sleeping time with that person. We all know and have experienced the truth that a little absence makes the heart grow fonder, and taking time for ourselves makes us better partners and leaders. Why is this? Namely because when we take quiet alone time for ourselves, we create space to deepen in our faith, integrate all that we have learned and experienced throughout the day, and grow more fully into ourselves. When we spend all of our time with another person or at work, the boundary between us and them begins to blur and we feel burnt out and exhausted not knowing where we end and they begin, trying to fulfill both parties’ needs, wants, and expectations. Professionally speaking, as leaders we need time to make time to withdraw and rest, both within the workday setting and at home. Without boundaries that afford us the necessary space to be quiet, rest, and listen to our inner guidance system, we become directionless and over-worked. By choosing to incorporate quiet time into our day, we offer both ourselves and our professional lives some space and can return feeling refreshed, with a renewed sense of commitment and creativity.
