Taking breaks to rest your mind can help prevent you from burning out, Branson writes.
“It’s so important to carve a little time for yourself to breathe,” according to Branson.
Throughout the day, the billionaire drinks about 20 cups of tea, not only to stay energized, but to also reflect.
“Having a cup of tea is not only tasty and refreshing, it gives me a moment to stop and think without being distracted, and a chance to chat with friends, think through ideas, or sit for a second and simply be,” he writes in a separate post.
These breaks also prevent Branson from giving up.
“Often this time sparks new ideas as your mind wanders, or helps you find solutions to problems that have been bugging you,” he adds.
