It’s okay to take a vacation!


This past weekend I took a vacation.

A real vacation.

You’ll notice there were few tweets, facebook posts, etc. I didn’t blog, I didn’t teach yoga, I didn’t work.

I spent time with my family.

Really spent time with them!

It was absolutely lovely!

Yes, it was hard to be away from work.

But my to-do list will still be there today.

And I enjoyed the time with my family all the more because I was truly 100% PRESENT with my family.

We didn’t do anything earth shattering. We went out to eat, we drank wine out doors, we went for walks, shopping, cooked at home, watched movies, giggled and chatted. But it was fun.

And I didn’t miss out by taking vacation.

In fact, I now feel more energized, more excited, and more ready to get things done!
Because I took a pause.

It’s okay to take vacation. The work will still be here when you return.

Are you good about taking breaks?

    Sounds wonderful! I am good at taking breaks. My husband is not! ๐Ÿ™‚ I know it’s a lot harder to take breaks when you run your own business. Having your own business means work never really stops, so sometimes you have to MAKE it stop for a few days. It’s def good for you!

    I so agree with this! Taking a break is much needed when it comes to work life balance…even if it’s just for a short weekend. So glad you had fun with your parents!
