We tend to stress things in our life, through our education, academic tasks, our professional jobs, and even life issues. Sometimes we forget we are human beings, it’s natural for us to be sluggish, to feel tired, and especially to be burnt out if things are too much. We tend to put ourselves in a position that we don’t deserve to take some rest. Well, perhaps we need to reform that idea. It’s really important for us to know when to stop and take some time to breathe.
You need a vacation! It’s a period of time that you’ll do leisure activities or recreation for the purpose of spending the time away from home or from work. Of course, when we say vacation it elicits the usual “going to a beach or going to another place/country to spend time at”. Well that’s not the case. It’s up to you! A Vacation is flexible if you understand what you “want” and what you “need”. Perhaps you’re tired of all the work stress in the office, why not spend some time doing leisure swimming or water massages, or some sort. It really depends on your own preferences. The need for a vacation is due to the need of our body to be away from any stressors. As we all know, stress is one of the causes of some mental disorders or disparities. Having to mitigate it is a form of self care! Vacation itself is self-care as long as you are taking care of your wellbeing.
Some studies pointed out that vacation really produces a positive feeling for us, either by lowering stress, producing a good outlook in life and even boosting our motivation in our daily living or job tasks. We really need to hit the breaks every now and then. It could help you to think more deeply into your desires in life. Help you to be more into it! So what are you waiting for! Better use that sick leave for your own wellness! :D
