Every day we report to work and focus on what we need to do in order to succeed in our careers. We schedule appointments, meet deadlines, and fry our brains for hours at a time. We do this daily resulting in stress, self-doubt, and frustration. We get flustered, forget things, and sometimes take shortcuts instead of completing assignments the right way. We’ve all been there, that’s why this blog post is critical. It hits home for a lot of people who work and need a break from life. It’s important to give our minds a rest, as a matter of fact, it should be a requirement.
I know people that run off of energy drinks, works two or three jobs for years at a time and have no idea what it means to take a vacation. These people can be grumpy, lose insight on their goals, and forget their purpose in life, all because they don’t take a break from work. Taking our mind and body away from our work space does a lot for our mental health. Everyone should take a vacation at least once a year. If you can squeeze in two vacations per year that’s great, and if you can go more than twice a year, you’re doing better than most Americans! I conducted some research and read that thirty-five percent of Americans will take a vacation this year, are you a part of that 35 percent?
In May, I went on a cruise. This was my first time cruising and I must say I enjoyed the experience. The hubby and I met people from different parts of the world, and I visited some cool islands all within seven days. It was nice, well needed, and made me sad when it was time to return home.
