Lately, have you found yourself stuck in that metaphorical rut that you just can’t seem to get out of? Are you feeling some series work pressures and have lost all sight of that light at the end of the tunnel? Or maybe you keep dreaming about that holiday you’ve been meaning to book but work seems to always get in the way?
You deserve a break!
Even if you have to add it to the bottom of your to-do list, allocate some time to just have a break!
Work and business can be trying at best and even the good days can really take it out of you.
Stress isn’t good for anyone and prolonged or overwhelming amounts of stress aren’t good for your body either! Don’t put yourself at risk of burning out – keep a healthy body and mind by giving yourself a break to restore yourself physically and mentally to a healthier place. By doing so will ensure your creativity and productivity are always at their peak!
Taking a break from the demands of life is crucial to keeping the momentum going and keeping the most important aspects of your life on track.
Think about what you do for a living. Your job could be physically demanding – factory worker, farmer or even a fitness instructor. Or is your job more mentally challenging? Business owner, lawyer or surgeon? All jobs that fall under the umbrella of both are just as important as each other and all deserving of some time out.
A significant amount of people have the opportunity to take holidays from their jobs and such but choose to work instead.
A common misconception is that by taking a break from working life, you are avoiding the responsibilities you have. Or maybe you hold the quality of your work to such a high standard that you can’t afford not to do it or have someone else complete it instead?
Sooner or later you have to come to terms with that fact that you can’t keep going 100mph without coming to a stop at some point. Even the biggest machines in the world have to stop and be maintained, fuelled and well oiled. And you do too!!
Take a breather and use the time to take care of yourself so you can have the stamina to be the very best version of you.
You might prefer a week soaking up the sun on a gorgeous beach holiday or you could even be considering a career break to decide what path to take next.
Remember, you can always pick up where you left off, no matter how long you take.
