This has been my mantra to a number of people lately, especially during Covid-19: Just because you’re working from home, doesn’t mean that you don’t need time away from work. Friends who are working remotely have told me how much more efficiently they’re working when they don’t have to commute. I totally get that, and working efficiently is great. Enjoy your work! However, as a human, you need to take a break to refresh and recharge, just as you would if you were working at the office.
My point is supported by a terrific post by Regina Borsellino, writing for The Muse, one of my favorite go-to sources for career advice. This is an excellent guide on why you should take off and how to manage it. Click here and take notes. Then, please plan the break that you deserve! XOXO
