Life and the Single Christian Girl
I have just realised that taking holidays is good for you.
Before I started as a school chaplain, I worked in a lot of child related careers and the one thing that I didn’t do very well was taking holidays. I just felt like I didn’t need them, or I needed to save them just in case. Just in case, I am really not sure why.
Now I am in a position where we do have holidays and even though I am on call I do have the time off.
I have discovered that I love holidays, as much as I love my career I need to take the break.
We have just started term four this week and I have come back from holidays feeling refreshed and ready to get back into what will be a very busy term.
I know that sometimes you can’t take two weeks off, but what about trying a mini break?
Try taking the weekend off, plan or set aside a weekend where you can just rest. Do something that you really enjoy.
I have learnt that when you look after yourself you are able to care for others properly. You are able to really listen to others.
Taking time off is not selfish, it is something that you need to do to refresh yourself.
I am really looking forward in excitement and anticipation to what will happen this term.
I really want to be able to maintain the balance of work, home and to be able to have those times when I can be creative.
Being creative for me is something that I love to do.
When was the last time you had a break?
Is there time for you to have a mini break?
Will share more soon.
Loves and hugs
