When is it time for you to take a break?

Right! What kind of question is that? As if you don’t know when it’s time for you to take a break! Of course you do. Somewhere deep inside, you know exactly when it’s time for you to take a break. Not the ‘Have A Break. Have a KitKat’ kind. A real break! But do you take it? Probably not.

You think things like: “If only I can get through this week” or “I don’t have time for a break; there’s too much to do” or “I just need to tough it out” or “I just had a break; I can’t just take another one”.

Do any of these sound familiar? Are you saying any or all of these things to yourself for weeks on end?


Other signs you need to take a break:

  • You feel stressed even before you get out of bed
  • You have a hard time falling asleep because you keep going over things you need to do tomorrow
  • You have a hard time falling asleep because you keep thinking about the things that didn’t get done
  • You can’t stay on top of your to-do-list
  • You’re regularly unreasonable with family, friends and colleagues
  • You can’t sit still and relax
  • You have a hard time delegating, thinking things will fail if you don’t do them yourself
  • Everything seems big, overwhelming, hard, ….
  • You dream of a small accident to happen. Nothing serious, but just enough to lie you up in a hospital bed for a couple of weeks. Oh, the sleep you’ll get!
  • You feel bad about taking, needing a break

If, when any or all of these sound familiar to you, YOU NEED TO STEP AWAY AND TAKE A BREAK.

What will your break be? And when will you take it?

As always ….
