Pause: Harnessing The Life-Changing Power of Giving Yourself A Break

By: Rachael O’Meara

While I did read several sabbatical books, what I like about this one is that is defines “pause” more broadly- whether that’s a daily, extended, a few breaths or even a digital pause. It speaks to those who know that they need some downtime and can take some leave, as well as those who may not have the ability to take an extended formal break from employment. 

It’s pragmatic in its step-by-step process — identifying whether you need a break, how to take the pause plunge, and specific ways to build pause into your life. I love the last chapter, “Pausing as a Way of Life”- to actually rethink how we integrate pause into our life. This is the part I’m working on now.  It’s a great book to help you reflect for yourself on what regular pauses might do for your life.
