I take one vacation every month.
I recommend everyone do this, regardless of their occupation.
It doesn’t have to be a long weekend trip states away. It can simply be a day-trip to a national park 30 minutes away.
Time away from your routine and working life is vital. Not only does it give your brain a refreshing reset, but it also lets you better enjoy your routine and work when you return.
When you don’t think about work at all for a day or a weekend, you come back to it with new energy, new excitement, and new perspective.
When I get back to work on Monday, I sit down at my computer with a smile on my face. I’m both eager to be productive and eager for my next vacation.
Take some time for yourself.
