Chris Murchison blogged for Whil, “Suffering from busyness? Create more Yutori in your work,” about how chronic busyness creates stress and reduces productivity. People have a need for spaciousness and time to reflect, according to Murchison. “Our bodies and minds need rest to renew, refresh, reflect, and focus.” This need for “unexpected spaciousness” has a term, Yutori. Murchison also shared strategies for creating Yutori in life.
