Feeling Like a Robot? Reclaim Your Spark with the Power of Time Off

Feeling Like a Robot? Reclaim Your Spark with the Power of Time Off

Hey there, girlies! 🌟 I see you out there, hustling, chasing your dreams with every ounce of energy you’ve got. But let me ask you this: when was the last time you took a real break? Not just a quick coffee run, but a genuine, unplugged, stress-free break? If you’re squinting your eyes trying to remember, it’s time for a chat about the magic of PTO – Paid Time Off.

The Mental Benefits of Taking Time Off

The personal tea:

In the summer of 2022, I was knee-deep overworked. Delivering a shit ton of assets for the company I worked for back then. I literally felt my brain was about to short-circuit at any moment and the expectation was to “keep pushing, we’re almost at the end of the campaign”. In that moment it HIT ME: reclaiming my mental health and the space to relax was really up to me. So, at that moment, I booked a vacation using my PTO and said “See ya suckers!” Ok, I did not say that but you get the point.

Facts:

You don’t have to take my word for it – science backs this up! Studies show that vacations significantly reduce stress, prevent burnout, and enhance your mental clarity and creativity. According to the American Psychological Association, taking time off can improve your overall mental health, making you more productive and focused when you return to your routine. It’s like hitting the reset button for your brain!

This is your sign to:

  • Plan: Schedule your PTO in advance to ensure you get those needed breaks.
  • Delegate Tasks: Make a list of your responsibilities and delegate them to your teammates.
  • Set an Out-of-Office Message: This is crucial to manage expectations while you’re away.

The Physical Health Benefits

Okay, let’s get real. Our bodies are amazing, but they’re not machines. They need downtime to recharge. Have you ever noticed how a good vacation can make you feel like you’ve hit the refresh button on your entire body? That’s because relaxation time is essential for physical health.

Research shows that taking holidays can improve heart health, enhance sleep patterns, and boost overall energy levels. A study by the Framingham Heart Study found that people who didn’t take vacations were 30% more likely to have a heart attack - YIKES! 😨. Ladies, our health is priceless, and taking time off is a vital part of maintaining it.

Here’s some practical advice

  • Incorporate Mini Breaks: Even if you can’t take a long vacation, mini self-care breaks can work wonders. Try weekend getaways or even a staycation.
  • Prioritize Sleep: Use your time off to catch up on sleep. Get those 8 hours. Your body and skin will thank you!
  • Always Stay Active: Make it a priority to engage in activities you love, whether it’s hiking, yoga, or dancing. Movement is medicine!

Nourishing the Soul

More Personal Tea:

Last summer, I took a solo trip to the beach (I’m a water fairy 🧚‍♂️ ). No emails, no social media, just me and the ocean. That trip nourished my soul more than I thought it would. I came back with a renewed sense of purpose. I got to know myself even more and whatever was out of alignment, slowly started to shed from me - I get chills every time I remember the sensation 🫶🏻🥹❤️‍🩹.

Taking time for yourself isn’t just about relaxation; it’s about enriching your soul. It’s a chance to reconnect with what truly matters – your passions, your loved ones, and your inner self. Whether it’s exploring new places, indulging in hobbies, or simply enjoying quiet moments, these experiences feed your soul and enhance your overall well-being. This is something I would highly recommend to make part of your routine.

But How? Well…

  • Pursue Joyful Activities: Engage in hobbies or activities that bring you joy. It could be painting, writing, gardening, or anything that makes your heart sing.
  • Travel with Purpose: Plan trips that excite you and offer new experiences, new cultures and POVs. Travel broadens your horizons and enriches your life.
  • Spend Quality Time: Use your time off to deepen connections with family and friends. Relationships are a key component of a fulfilling life.
