On taking breaks
Just a friendly reminder that it's ok to take a break😊
Even if you've got big dreams you're chasing, 10,000 things you need to do & everyone's asking you for something - you're still your own top priority.
You can't take care of anything else if you don't take care of yourself 😬
I've always struggled to take breaks. I feel guilty for relaxing when there're so many things I want to do & people I want to spend time with. I think a lot of us are the same. The "hustle & grind" culture is great for getting shit done but just remember that chilling & doing nothing is ok too.
It hit me today that I was completely exhausted. It's funny how exhaustion shows up. It's rarely "tiredness" that sleep & coffee can fix. It's being frustrated at the smallest hiccups, lashing out at the people you love & sometimes, just apathy at life.
I've learned that if I'm not completely freaking excited for life & excited to wake up each day (which I usually am 😊) - it's not life that sucks....I'm probably just a bit tired.
So long story short - it's okay to finish your work for today, grab some ice cream & binge Netflix guilt-free 😉 (that's my plan anyway)
