rest will increase productivity and creativeness

Did you know that if you will take a bit of time to rest, you will not only be more productive but also more creative? You know how I have said a million times that I get the best ideas while in the shower? Because it is relaxing. And we all know how some fresh air and a short walk outside will actually refocus your brain. There is a common thread there. If the RPMs are constantly at the red line, your vehicle won’t last long, the same goes for you.

Is it possible you are tired of hearing about what I mastered in the Instant Pot today? I didn’t think so 🙂 , so here goes, this was super simple and really good.


place 2 T extra virgin olive oil and 2 dices cloves of garlic in the Instant Pot and press saute. As soon as it is hot add 1 cup rinsed and well drained brown rice. (Not the intstant or quick kind) Stir and saute for about 2 minutes. Then add 1.5 cups water. Stop, add the lid and then use the manual setting for pressure, high pressure for 15 mins, when it is complete, let sit for 5 more minuntes then quick release the remaining steam. Open, stir, and tell me if that isn’t the best brown rice you have ever had.
