Can Relaxing Increase Your Success?

I always like to look up little tips and tidbits on my iPhone because it is so tempting. One of the recent words of advice that I found was on a blog that discussed using balance to create better success in your work life. Doesn't that normally work completely the opposite? Most people struggle to maintain a busy schedule so that they can work, work, work, and make all the money.

This idea is contrary to what many people believe in that we need to renew our energy every 90 minutes to perform at our best. This is talking not only about the physical, but also about the emotional and mental aspect. When you rest and relax every 90 minutes, the times that you do work will be much more productive overall. Can you believe it? I know that this is something that would be incredibly difficult for me to do, especially since I am tempted to keep on working, even if I am mentally and physically fatigued. However, this could represent the new model for success to allow you to work long hours through balance and rejuvenation instead of working yourself to death.
