We have finally had a cooler day with some rain here! So happy about that! And it was on a day that I had off form work! I’ve gotten some things done around the house but I have also just enjoyed my day. I will admit I was a bit lazy. But honestly, over the month of June, that just wasn’t even an option. There was so much going on all the time in June that it was just go go go all month long. I think more people need to take life breaks every now and then. We as a society need to take some time to just refresh.
Why we should refresh:
~ We come out more focused after. By taking even a couple hours or simply a bath to relax and refresh we push the reset button and are able to come back more focused on the work at hand or the life issue that stands before us. It helps us take a step back and see things from a different angle.
~ We don’t implode. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t take time to refresh and relax I tend to implode and damage relationships around me. I end up hurting others and myself in the process. We again are able to take a step back and see things from a different angle and see how our actions affect those around us.
~ We are happier! Who doesn’t want to be happier?! I know that is always a goal for me! By taking time away from your duties and just enjoying You time, it makes your overall sense of happiness more prominent. So take that time to relax and refresh!
~ We realize the world does not revolve around us. Refreshing really helps take us out of ourselves and realize that there is more to this world that our stresses. There is more going on than just our issues. That in and of itself helps us refresh, or at least it helps me refresh and relax. I love realizing it is not all about me. Probably just my personality type lol.
Time to go enjoy the rest of my day off before heading back to the retail world tomorrow!
