Go on Holiday – You Deserve It!!

For many working people taking a break can seem almost impossible.  I am not just talking about a coffee break or lunch but also a holiday.  Can you even remember what one of those is?

Ok, so you probably do take a holiday but is it really a true break?  I can just see you now stopping at the service station to check tweets, at the airport quickly checking your email before the plane takes off, searching the guide book for wifi zones.  This is not a holiday and you really must stop this as it is not good for you.

Come on you work hard all year round and this is your chance to forget about work. With careful planning you can really have that break you deserve.

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know that the last two months have been madness for me.  Juggling a household full of sick people and a demanding work schedule there has been very little play time for me.  Feeling zapped of energy a break from the daily emails, calls and work load was well and truly needed.

I knew that there were certain client tasks coming up so a whole week was out of the question but with careful planning I was able to block out days to have two long weekends. And wow it was amazing, no emails, no calls, no daily task lists just pure freedom.  We enjoyed walks on the beach, trips to museums, lazy breakfasts, long lunches and lots more.

Not being tied to my desk, going from one thing to another, constantly checking the time was a chance to recharge those batteries.

I am back at work today and loving it!

    Hi Emma I ‘m so glad you had a couple of good breaks. I can honestly say that I switch off for holidays (literally turn off e mails on my phone). And I planned to have three weeks in May away from it all. The only problem is, despite several callenders I did not consult any when I booked my flights and found I have a wedding to go to in the middle of the break – so now I have four flights booked!!!
