Have you been feeling like something’s been missing? You’re working. You’re working a lot. Maybe you’re working all the time. Your balance is off. I admit that there are periods when work takes the largest portion of my days and nights. While it feels necessary to work so much, lately my balance hasn’t been good.
In an attempt to change the cycle, I decided to give myself a break during the Thanksgiving holiday. I turned my energy towards preparing for Thanksgiving and having the family together. I suspended doing and thinking about work over a five-day period and it was wonderful.
I loved being with my family, especially since it’s harder these days to get everyone together. We cooked, ate, hugged, laughed, talked, and played games. After everyone left, I had a few days just with my husband to hang out, go to the movies and relax.
It was just what I needed, a family-filled break.
How do you navigate life balance? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Come join the conversation.
