Taking A Mental Break

Work. Class. Homework. Bills. Life. Health. Friends. Social life. Family. Love. Work. Dreams. Life. Class. Homework. Social life. Health.

STOP.

Have you ever felt like your life is just on auto pilot and you’re just constantly doing and going and moving and working and accomplishing and basically sacrificing your thoughts for constant activity? If that’s you, then you need to stop. You need to pause. You need to breathe. You need to think about the things you’re doing.

It’s easy to get caught up in the demands of work and life and trying to achieve your dreams or just trying to make it through each week. And if you’re just moving through life without taking a break for yourself, it’s easy to get burnt out.

I know, because I’m almost there. Thankfully the holidays are coming up and I’ve got plans for some rest and relaxation mixed in between holiday parties and family gatherings. It’s time to slow down and appreciate everything I’ve accomplished this year and recoup my energy and motivation before the new year starts.

It’s also important to think about the ROI you’re getting from everything you’re doing. Since every action means you’re not doing something else, how can you make sure that every activity you’re completing is contributing positively to your life and aligns with your goals? You need to determine the return you’re getting on the investment of your time and energy. Understandably not everything you’re doing is 100% aligned with your goals, especially if you’re in a job you don’t love or you’ve got other obligations to fulfill, but that means you should be contributing some of your time and energy to making changes to those activities that don’t provide a positive ROI.

What better time than now to take a pause, reevaluate your current position in life, and determine some next steps to make changes where you can be happier. Where you can be more balanced. Where you can be a better you. 

It’s a perfect time to take care of you and get back in line with your dreams, passions, and goals. 2016 is just around the corner…

Happy Holidays, friends. Are you taking a break for yourself to reconnect with your self and goals?
