No, you don't have to. I often feel like I always have to be doing something "productive" in order to live a life of value, but I've come to realize that taking time for yourself and relaxing is also productive because it allows you to recharge so you can do better at the stuff that matters to you. You'll go crazy if you're always working on something. I still struggle with this sometimes but I try to remind myself that I wouldn't judge somebody else for taking a break, so I shouldn't judge myself.

Agreed, I see no reason to force yourself to do something. Some people like to sit and watch the weather.

Do what you must, and do what you want, never mind the should.

Use your judgement. Everyone needs rest but if you find that you are sloughing off too much you might want to push yourself to do more. Staying productive is how we keep in the loop of life. xo, j
