The Art of Taking A Break

Have you ever thought that a day doing nothing is just another day to waste?

Rest easy, it's not just you, we've been there too. No matter how exhausting it was for us, we still felt guilty for taking a break after a long tiring day at work. We experienced this thing called burnout, a state where we were physically and mentally exhausted that was caused by living in a too fast pace environment for too long. You know what's worse? We thought that it was our fault. We thought that we didn't try hard enough. 

Little did we know, that it was really toxic for us. We were overwhelmed by work, we couldn't feel things like we used to. It affected the way we thought, the way we connected with our closest friends and relatives, it even affected the way we see things, the way we saw ourselves. We felt that we're not worthy because we couldn't achieve things we've set expectations for. But when we looked at it again, it was us to blame all along. We caused our own stress.

We don't want you to experience things the way we did. After all, we believe that we always could do something for ourselves. Here's how we saved ourselves from burnout.

1. Reduce caffeine from your daily intake

We know that sometimes we need coffee -- or tea -- to stay awake. But please remember, caffeine is a stimulant. It will only make it worse because caffeine will keep pushing the tiredness.

2. Schedule your relaxation time 

We often schedule our meetings and appointments but have we make time to ease up? Block some time in your daily or weekly schedule, as simple as one hour for light-reading everyday, one zumba class twice a week, or one Netlix episode a day. And just like we make ourselves to do our work based on our schedule, make sure we follow our relaxing schedule. Remember, making time to relax is as important as making time to work.

3. Don't see your worth by your achievements

Never ever think that you're worthy because you achieve something. Because if that's the way you see your worth, you'll be very messed up when you fail. You are not your biggest success. You are a complicated jumble of winning, losing, good times and bad times. 

How you feel about yourself should not be based on how many hours you put in at the office or how many times someone praised you. Relearn the idea of your self-worth. No pressure, your life is never a competition anyway.

And we take this labour day as an occasion to unwind, rest ourselves before we get back hustling and doing what we like to do. We hope that you could feel the same way too. Because you did very well on your work and you deserve the time you need to loosen up.

A STORY BEHIND GLENDIVE: When Busy Becomes A Trend

When did busy become a trend?

In this world we live in where everyone takes pride in looking busy for no specific reason, juggling between one thing to another is common. Well, isn't it just like all the advertisement says, keep moving forward?

People working until late at night, even on weekends, is not a rare scenery anymore. Believe us when we say that, or if you don't, try to visit the nearest coffee shop after the working hours and look at all the occupied chairs seated by people in front of their laptops with their occupied mind.

We are so busy in what we're doing and we have our attention on things we want to achieve until we really don't have time for even the tiniest fuss anymore. Even the most insignificant irritating inconvenience could lead to us being cranky, or worse, us being stressful.

Responding to this phenomenon, we couldn't help but think what could we do as an implementation of our desire to take an active part in giving the correct answer to this puzzle?

And from this burning question in our head, Glendive was born.

Glendive was designed for young urban commuters, business owners, energetic employees, or everyone who's always on the move yet never settle for less. With the one swipe all cards out feature, we aimed to simplify everyone's life. 

Let us tell you how it works. It could save your time in finding the right cards at every transaction (who has time for that?) and the value doesn't stop there. 
Glendive also equipped with money clip to store your cash. Perfect for keeping everything essentials.

And just like how it was designed to be, we truly hope that Glendive could really be your everyday's life sidekick and make your life easier.
