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.
