A Coffee Break

I spend a good portion of my life on the go. I’m running to work,
running to school, running to work out, and do homework, and eat, and etc. etc…
I love living a full, busy life, but through the years I’ve learned the
importance of taking a break. I’ve learned I have to take a break from the
responsibilities and pressures of everyday. Here are three reasons why I choose
to take a break at work, from blogging, and school:

1.      
Taking a
break helps me clear my head:
When I’m facing a difficult problem or
project at work, I’ve learned that I have to take a step back from any
frustrations. I’ve learned that I have to physically take a step back by either
working out, going on a walk, or changing the environment I’m working in.

2.      
Gain
Perspective & New Ideas:
Sitting in front of the computer all day is
not always the best place to draw inspiration from. When I come home to blog, I
sometimes already feel drained from
being in front of a computer all day. So I always make it an objective to work
out after work, go on a walk, or see friends to help me regain a new perspective and come up with new ideas for blogging. Hanging
out with my friends or being active in another activity allows me to experience
my dilemmas or ideas in a different light.

3.      
Productivity
+ Refocus
: I continue to take breaks at work, blogging, and studying
because they help me stay productive and allow me to refocus. When I carve out
time for myself to work out or see friends, I know I have to be productive in
the time I work so I can enjoy my break. Instead of allowing myself to be
distracted by my phone as I type up a homework assignment, I set a time limit
to take a break so I can be on my phone and time to focus on my assignment.

Taking a break feeds into my Health focus this year. Aside from eating
healthy and exercising, allowing myself time to relax, recharge, and refocus
will be a primary objective for me in 2017.

What are some ways you take a break from work, your passions, or your
responsibilities?

    Reading is my go-to relaxation, also taking a nap is something I find really helps me, especially if I'm feeling anxious! Things always look better after that. PS. LOVE those shoes!
