When to take a self-care break

No matter how much you feel that you need to improve at becoming better at your job or at life (workaholics & perfectionist, I’m looking right at you), there comes a point in life when taking a self-care break is necessary.

If you’re constantly tired, drained, unmotivated, or resentful because you don’t feel a sense of balance, you’re in need of a self-care break.

Why you should take a self-care break

Take some time off to replenish and reenergize. Let your self-care break refresh you. Your body and soul resents it when you don’t take a break.

Maybe all that you need is a short break to realign yourself with the purpose of your work. Taking a breather helps you come back to life with renewed motivation. When you’re well-rested, you perform better in your work and projects. 


How to take a self-care break

As long as you are not working, you can watch your favorite movies, read your favorite book. Sleep in or treat yourself to a spa day. 

How much time you need for your self-care break will depend on how much balance you need back into your life.

However you choose to take your self-care break, let it replenish you with energy and motivation to pick up where you left off.

  3. I agree self-care is so very important indeed. And the trick is knowing your body’s limit and topping up your tank when it gets drained.
    Journaling is the best thing for self-care because then you really get to know yourself on a deeper level not just the surface face.

  4. That is so true that sometimes you should take breaks and have time for yourself.
    I probably should do it more often.

    Self care is very important. I actually spent most of this year taking self care breaks, especially this month. I pretty much hibernated all year long. Haha
