I realised a while ago that a lot of my readers don’t know what I do for a living. As open as I am on my blog, I like to keep my worklife private. But I can tell you that I work in the digital industry. Working in this industry means that you are online 24/7, and it’s super difficult to plan a holiday/break when you are always accessible. But at the beginning of 2017 I promised myself that I would try. This year is all about taking care of my physical and mental health, and a big part of that is learning when to take some time to myself.
And so that’s what I did this past week. I went to Herold’s Bay with J-P for the long weekend, and on Thursday and Friday I chilled at home, had my nails done and watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It was exactly what I needed, and I feel refreshed and ready to #werkit.
Take a break. Trust me when I say that it’s what’s best for you and for everyone around you.
