With days zipping by without us noticing it, it may be time to take a break and take everything in stride. And that is exactly what I did yesterday.
I noticed that for the past 2 weeks I was feeling a little depressed and easily irritated that I sat back and tried to take stock of what was happening to me. I knew that I was tired from lack of sleep and stress but I really wasn't listening to what my body was telling me. In the past 3 months, I have already used up 3 sick days, which means 1 in a month, which is not so good.
Yesterday, I decided to take one of my vacation leaves and try to enjoy my long weekend. I spent most of the weekend catching up on much needed sleep. I checked my mail Saturday and prepared for a meeting yesterday morning, but aside from that, I did not open my laptop. For most of the day yesterday, I was offline. My laptop was off, my phone was off during my nap time. It felt good to feel disconnected for even such a short time.
Now I feel refreshed and ready to face my battles again.
Bring it on!
