At home,everytime the Wi-Fi router starts acting up or acts all funny ,I simply turn it off and reset the whole thing.
And magically like a whole orchestra coming together the Wi-Fi router begins to function as smoothly as before.
Your brain is just like that.
It has too much to handle and begins lagging behind. You’re falling behind on deadlines. You can’t seem to remember the last time you took some time off. You simply can’t get anything done.
All you need is a quick reset.
Signs you need a mental reset
You feel “down in the dumps”
When you can’t pinpoint that one thing that is really making you feel this way and nothing seems interesting to you anymore.
Little things set you off.
You feel overwhelmed and simply can’t figure out what to do about it.
You keep moving from one task to another

It doesn’t spark any inspiration
When was the last time you got out of bed excited for something to look forward to ?
