Life can be wonderful, splendid and adversarial. When life is complicated over an extended period of time take a mental or a physical sabbatical. A mental sabbatical involves taking a few moments out your day to reflect on memorable experiences or perhaps a poem that brings you joy.
A physical sabbatical is exactly that. Plan a one day or extended vacation. Please do not take any work related materials or stressful thoughts on your journey. This is your debriefing period. Consider what will elevate your mood and expand your happiness. Browse through a book you’ve always wanted to read. Take a drive along a peaceful setting and just breathe. Be intentional about your rest and relaxation excursion. Just do it.
