#1 habit that sets successful people apart from everyone else?

Rest and recovery is key to being ‘successful’, suggests psychologist Sarah Sarkis.  Millionaires and Olympians alike tout the importance of outworking your competition and pushing past your limits. While this might be true, exertion isn’t what sets high achievers apart from everyone else. It’s Rest and recovery!

“We mistakenly associate success with constantly having our foot on the gas, and we have complicated feelings when it’s not on the gas. The people who prioritize rest are the ones who are “at the top of their game” and “the happiest.”

Past research has shown that ‘working without downtime’ decreases productivity, reduces creativity and can intensify stress.
