Why Breaks Are Necessary

mental health

I’ve been silent for a while. Part of me hates that, part of me knows I needed it. Breaks, regardless of what they are from, are key to a healthy lifestyle for me.

When my mind gets going in so many directions it can’t remember what comes next, it’s time for a break. Sometimes it’s a break from everything, or just one thing. What’s frustrating is that I can’t plan when these breaks need to occur. It’s a lesson in patience to know when I need to back-off and take a rest.

These lessons can be difficult to undergo, but I’m here to tell you that no matter how annoying, stupid, helpful, or lame these lessons are, every single one of them have helped me get to the place where I am today. So, hang in there!

Five things to take a break from:

  1. The obvious: social media
  2. Smart electronics
  3. Television
  4. Human interaction
  5. Self-criticism

What do you need to take a break from? Start slow – a day or two is all it takes!
Thanks for listening.
