Do you think transformation is possible through everyday life or do you need to step away from your usual surroundings and experience something else on offer?
The average Australian works 30 hours per week. In Mexico they work on average 43 hours and the United States 34 hours per week. That’s a lot of hours!
With the appearance of the ‘digital age’ and majority of people now working from home, people can continue to work ‘un-clocked’ hours as well. Or perhaps are working two jobs to make ends meet or work on their passionate side project in their personal time.
But the constant grind, will simply wear you out. (Been there – done that).
You don’t need to take a holiday overseas or even domestically. But you do need to make the time to give yourself a break and revive the soul. Surprisingly, a lot of us have guilt around ‘self care’ and taking ‘time off’ and end up putting it on ‘The Bucket List’ rather than the ‘To-Do’ list.
Having suffered from anxiety, I make self-care a priority. If it doesn’t get done, I can start to feel things crumble around me. If I take a break of 5 or more days where I’m away from doing my usual work tasks – then I feel even better! Just having that respite helps your brain to re calibrate, relax and get a fresh perspective on life, rather than feeling stale, stuck and stagnant.
As humans we are ever evolving, whether we like it or not. Each cell in our body is transforming every day and sometimes on a conscious level, we have to let go of old mindsets and beliefs to be able to move forward and enjoy a new chapter in life.
I just wanted to write this blog as a reminder for you to create and schedule that change you may need in your life. Lock the dates in now in your diary and stick to you. Eg. 10JUN – 15JUN switching off the computer and having a stay-cation! Just as long as it’s away from your normal every day routine. You deserve it.
