I’ve had an incredible busy few weeks. Not to mention my to-do list is close by and packed with tasks. And I hardly take breaks and nor do I leave time for a proper lunch which I know isn’t a good thing. We often know that there’s a better way to do things, but we’re just so busy we don’t even think we have the time to find it. So we end up keeping going like we’re used to. I decided that enough was enough and realized I needed to give myself a break. And then I discovered the power of taking breaks at work. They made me happier, more focused and more productive and I’m sure they can do the same for you, whether you’re in the office or a cubicle, or working at home. My husband and I were driving home just before sunset when we passed a remote green field. We stopped and watched the sunset together. It was nice just to get out of the car, take a break and breathe in the fresh air, not thinking about anything else but watching the sunset streaking the skies with beautiful hues of orange, yellow, pink, purple and other vivid colours.
