Daily work demands, meetings, and emails can lead to a frantic pace and constant need to be productive. Taking a break or time off allows for recharging, refreshing concentration and quality work.
Whether scheduling a half-day, full day, or multiple days off, shift your focus to creative ways to relax and recharge with:
Recreation or travel – vacations force you out of your routine and have been shown to make the body more resilient to stress, improve motivation and help foster relationships.
Self-care and mental health support – planned time off can be a time to catch up on sleep, encounter new experiences and create positive thoughts of something to look forward to.
Focused family time – even if you can’t get away, pack away your computer, take a staycation and create memories as souvenirs.
A simple break can create precious memories, strengthen bonds and develop a new sense of optimism.
“Sometimes when we take a break, we may find that solutions present themselves.” Catherine Pulsifer
