We're all super busy, running around all day every day pursuing happiness. But let me tell you something, happiness can not be caught, nor can you find it anywhere but within. That's why it's super important we take a break regularly, and stop for a minute. Sometimes it's enough to just stand still for a minute and be aware of your body, what surrounds you, and the fact of time. Enjoy the moment. And sometimes we need more than that, but we rarely make time for a day off. Here's why that's a mistake:
You need to recharge you batteries. You need to clear your head, so when you get back to your hectic lifestyle, you can give it your 101%. If you don't take a break you'll just end up being miserable and burned out, you might even get sick!
It's ok to enjoy life. Your job is still going to be there tomorrow if you take an afternoon off. Your kids will still be ok if they're home alone for a day. School will be waiting for you if you decide to stay home for a week. My point is DON'T LET LIFE RUN ITSELF, BECAUSE IT WILL RUN AWAY FROM YOU.
Now go & take some time off, and love the life you live - it's the only one you get!
