Sometimes you need to appreciate the value of a productive break. Taking some time off (or even taking a nap) can give you the energy you need to finish the task at hand before exhaustion sets in.
This is a time for healing and recovery. You need some peace and quiet in your life to mend any broken bridges that might make it difficult to communicate with those you truly care for.
Sometimes, buying something with a large discount can be as profitable as investing some money and hoping for a later profit.
