Taking A Break

March has been a stressful month of midterms, rain and beginning to confront my future. So honestly, I needed a vacation.

It’s been a bit longer than usual since I posted my last blog. But while I was gone, I was home in California resting, recharging and spending time with my family. And as much as I love to write, I needed to take some time away from blogging to stay present in my time off.

I’ve been known to fall into workaholic tendencies and put a tremendous amount of pressure on myself to do everything at once. But time and time again, I’ve found the value of unapologetically taking a small break from the work in my life to reset.

A big part of this that I’ve struggled with is setting the boundaries needed to take some real time away. When an email popped up in my inbox while I was on vacation, I couldn’t help but feel compelled to respond. But if it’s work-related, it can wait until I’m ready to regroup because sticking to these boundaries will help jump back into all my responsibilities stronger. I needed that time to focus on myself.

I know that hard work is crucial to success. But it’s equally important to stay sane amid the work by giving yourself some time to recharge. That’s how I spent my last week at home in California and I hope that sometime this week you take even one day to reset too.
