Take A Break

Last week, I managed to take some sort of holiday. It was the last week of my Easter university holidays before the return for the exam period.

I tried to do very little other than relax. It felt strange not to be working, but was so important to try to rest and recharge.

I felt exhausted at the end of the last semester and running on empty.

I know I struggle taking time off, but I need to work on this.

If in my “time off” I’m still thinking about work, worrying and stressing, then it’s not truly time off. It’s a warped version of resting, with my mind still ticking.

I’m trying to work on detaching myself from my work and being fully present.

How important is having a holiday for you?

What does that look like?
