1. Have Mental Rest
Taking a time-out prevents burnout. Mental fatigue can be as bad as physical fatigue. Recharge the psyche. Have some "me" time.
2. Accomplish Household Chores
Do laundry, house cleaning and other household tasks that have do be done. When you have a clean and organized house, it can be an aesthetic sanctuary.
You are more productive when you take time off. You will focus more. You will be more creative.
4. Have a Social Life
If you want to go to a birthday party or a cooking class, do it. Would you rather be dull and boring? Would you rather have all work and no play?
5. Keep Your Menstrual Cycle Regular
A regular menstrual cycle shows your body's important parts are working normally. There are women who go to the gym and workout so hard that their period stops. So, take some time off so your body can produce those important hormones.
6. Keep the Regeneration Process Flowing
This is important for the process of building strength, endurance and muscle. This rebuilds your body tissues to make them stronger. Also required is water, food, supplements and sleep.
Allowing oneself to rest from work and all the stresses in life is definitely not an option but a necessity. Not talking about religion, but I would like to quote Joyce Meyer from her book "Look Great Feel Great", that if you saw a run-down church, you'd wonder about the pastor, wouldn't you?
Take care of your body!
