Last year at this time I took two weeks off over the holidays and it was the best gift I ever gave myself. I was able to refresh myself, not only at work, but also with my website and IG account. I wrote down idea after idea, I set goals, and I made plans.
So it was a no brained for this holiday season to do the same thing. I realize I’m extremely fortunate to be able to do this, but I also sacrificed time off this summer and other times through the year in order to make it happen. With that being said, if you get the opportunity to do this, do it! Even if you don’t have anything you want to accomplish over the two weeks like I did. Just relax and refresh yourself.
Honestly planning photos and content for my site don’t really feel like work, it’s my favorite thing to do so it still felt like relaxing a refreshing.
And if you can’t take two weeks, take two days or two hours and do something for yourself. Work on that project you’ve been putting off because it felt daunting. Finish the book you’ve been meaning to read. Lose yourself in mindless television. Do whatever you want to do as long as it’s for yourself.
