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?
