Every year we take time to recognize team members that best personify the 5 Core Values of Newmind Group. Those 5 core values are: Be Awesome, Get Stuff Done, Make Things Better, Make Mistakes, Rest and Reflect. This is the final article of our Core Values series, written by Newminder Luke about Resting & Reflecting. Enjoy!

Time to unwind.Work is done and you need to recharge. Rest and reflection time is tough to come by for most of us, but making it a priority pays off big. We all need a counterpoint to the daily hustle. Our minds need space to be contemplative, to make abstractions and to pursue the things that ignite our passions.
Finding something beautiful or fascinating or just plain fun might not be easy for everybody. Our culture doesn't always validate these kinds of pursuits, and seeing them as secondary or auxiliary to the main goal - productivity - sets us up for failure.
