In Life the most anyone comes to a real break from life is a nap or sleep. Meditation is a healthy break from life, refreshing the mind, body, spirit. Life can be so busy and meditation becomes an ally to it. It is cost-effective and health hygiene effective. Yes, no batteries just you at the helm of command well and your subconscious. Some even find it divine.
In art school I learned to work hard on a painting walk away from it and come back to the work of art. To gain a different perspective. A 10 minute meditation break from a project or a meditation retreat serves as a break from work. Even on vacation I still meditate to get a healthy break and recharge my spirits.
