Whatever you call it (vacation, PTO, time off), take it.
Plan it. Create an awesome out of office auto-reply. Let staff/clients know you’ll be out. And go!
Go somewhere or do something that takes you to another world, one that doesn’t include work. Everything will be OK.
We all hear about self care. Many may even highly recommend it to staff or clients.
We have to practice it. I won’t go into all of the reasons why because we all know them. We know the benefits of self care and of actually taking time off. Of completely unplugging. It’s necessary, and possible.
Off to the beach. I’m officially on vacation!
