Do you have a job outside of your home? Or do you work from home? Do you take time off from your work from time to time? Think about the last time you took off from work when you were not sick or maybe you were sick. Some people work no matter what, even when really sick. There was times when I had bronchitis and still worked. Do your kids see you always working on the computer if you work at home? There is a reason why they give you vacation days at work.
I recently had some time off from my job. My job can tiring and stressful. It was nice to have to be home at night time when normally I am at work. I had ideas of what I wanted to do but they didn’t get done. It was stress free stay at home time off from work for me.
Reasons why You should take time off from working
Stress— Some jobs are very overwhelming and stressful. Stress can put a lot of pressure on someone where they may not sleep or be in grouchy moods all the time. Too much stress make a person sick as well.
Family — When you are working too much, you are missing out on family time. The family may think — mom doesn’t want to spend time with us. If you don’t spend time with your children, you miss out finding about who they are and they are growing up maybe.
Home — When working too much, your household duties can sometimes fall to wayside. Take a day to spring clean and dust or do things you don’t have time to otherwise.
Work — Having time off can give you an appreciation for why you have the job you do, why you like it or why you should continue doing it. Also do not let your time off that earn just sit there some companies will only let you keep so much time from year to year then you will lose some of your time.
If you are a blogger, you might understand what I am talking about. Every day there is something to be done for the blog. Maybe your family always sees you at the computer. Take some time to schedule out your social media or blog posts and maybe you won’t have to be online so much. Or maybe if you can afford it hire virtual assistant to help a little with your blog so when you need to take a break then you are able to.
So now think about the next time you need a break. Turn off all your distractions work related or not. Spend some time with family or get something done that you keep putting off. Family should be more important that work. It can be hard to balance both at times.
What will you be doing on your next day off from work if not sick?
