Over the last few week I’ve come to realise there is more to self care than just looking after yourself. In fact the most important thing is that sometimes you need to stop and say no.
Two weeks ago I realised that doing overtime was just me trying to stop being alone. The problem was that I was using it as an excuse for not relaxing.
After last week’s leave I realised that I needed a break. A chance to just recharge my batteries. Also, it gave me a chance to do as little or as much as I wanted. So, I enjoyed the break and returned back at work in a better place mentally.
Sometimes, you should listen to your body, mind and soul to find the right answer.
