Take a Vacation!

 In Managing Yourself, Self Care

Each month this year, I’ve been featuring one of my top-ten core values. This month is a little different!

Are you feeling a little weary of self-improvement? Like you’ve been stretching yourself soooo much as you strive to be your best self — and now you’re just plain tired of it?

Well, I’ve got good news for you. It’s time to take a break! Here we are in the month of July, when many people go on vacation. So, my blog and I are going on vacation, too.

And I hope you’ll take a break sometime this summer. Because here’s what I want you to know.

Taking a well-timed, well-earned break for yourself is also a powerful way to be your best self. If you don’t take breaks, and you just keep pushing, you risk burning out. That applies to everything. Work, the daily grind, and your self-improvement projects.

In fact, research shows that taking occasional breaks (just like getting adequate sleep) is essential for your overall well-being. You’ll feel better mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

So, set aside some time for you. Kick back and relax. Change up your routine. Sleep late! Go out and have some fun. Allow yourself to become recharged and revitalized.

I’ll see you in August!
