So many midlife women think that knowing how to prioritize downtime in midlife is important but don’t actually do it. In fact, there’s a lot of resistance toward downtime as a concept.

Downtime is one of those topics where there’s a big disconnect between what is generally accepted intellectually as something that’s desirable AND what actually happens in reality. There are several reasons for this.

It’s common for midlife women to combine their thoughts about productivity with downtime.
