Contrary to popular belief, a break from work and technology doesn’t put your career on hold. There are no breaks from life everything you consider off the records is just adding up to make you who you are. Look at a break as a way to get a new perspective, and reconnect with yourself with life as it has gone a little stale lately.
Maybe you love your job but are feeling just a little overwhelmed. There are various reasons to take a break but most importantly, it is easy to lose a sense of self within a social and busy world with adverts telling you what you are missing and work taking up your mind.
In this article, we address the reasons why it is crucial that you take a break from the comfort of the mechanical lifestyle of work and technology and fall back into yourself and enjoy your own company.
WHEN TO TAKE A BREAK?
When you find yourself seeking deeper and meaningful relationships, it is time to take a break. It may feel as though you are fostering relationships by checking friends and family social media feeds but you aren’t. If your head is constantly buried in your gadgets, you aren’t deepening relationships with the people that surround you and most importantly, yourself. Put your phone away and go away to a quiet personal space and reconnect with yourself.
If you start questioning your productivity and feel unaccomplished and all ideas questioning your self worth, it is time to step back. Everything is put on hold for a little peek at Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. There is nothing wrong with checking your social media unless you are using it as a distraction. It is a vicious cycle where you compare your life to that of others by their posts, then feel bad about your life, then continue to follow this trend to distract yourself from how stale you feel about your life. It is time to get back to reality where you have real goals to achieve.
The stress that comes from the need to have a glamorous life on social media is destructive, you pass through life like a zombie lost in the graphics of a device putting your health and business potential at risk. Take a break to observe your habits and adjust or throw them away completely, you will lose absolutely nothing. Real life is more fulfilling and not addictive because it is all there is.
The biggest mistake you can make when it comes to personal breaks is not taking one at all and missing out on the experience of a lifetime.
BENEFITS OF A BREAK
Change of scenery
Sure, you could decide to take a career break and stay at home, but where’s the fun in that?

You can choose to travel to one country and really immerse yourself or just take a brief trip to a cozy quiet place, it is really up to you. You do not have to step out big and luxurious to enjoy your break, but if you can, go for it! You need just the right place, with the right services and programs to give you a fulfilling break.
