Motivational Monday | Sometimes You Need a Break

Last week was just one of those weeks where I wasn’t inspired. I couldn’t get into the groove of anything. Whether it was work/blogging/homework, I was barely pushing through, but I felt stuck. I was moving, yet not nearly as productive as  wanted to be.

My blogging schedule got all out of whack, I was exhausted, and I just couldn’t stay on track. Friday, I took a personal day and this past weekend I was able to get back into my groove.

Sometimes I really just need to take a step back and relax. I wasn’t completely unproductive on Friday, but I was able to chill and gather my thoughts. I planned out my weekend and while I have my planner, sometimes I just have to write it all down.

Sometimes I just need to stop overthinking life.

Sometimes I just need to not sweat the small stuff.

Sometimes I need to take my own advice and live in the moment instead of trying to document every little thing.

Sometimes I need those personal days for that extra jolt.

Saturday and Sunday were spent recording videos and redecorating my bedroom. I spent time working from 9am – 11pm both days and I couldn’t feel better. Taking that step back on Friday allowed me to get back to what I love to do, creating, by the weekend.

I was stuck trying to figure out content. I was stuck with my job search. I was stuck trying to take in everything with 3 classes left until I get my MBA. Stuck trying to figure it all out. It’s easy to burn yourself out that way.

While I was able to create this weekend new content for the blog that covers the rest of April, I was also able to catch up. When there’s a lot on your plate, it’s easy to gal behind. I can now wake up Monday and not have to worry about what I’m posting or the assignment that’s due. It’s all done.
Sometimes that little break helps you get ahead.

  1. And sometimes you’re FORCED to by your body. I’ve felt that same way for the last week or so, this morning at 1 a.m. I woke up with an incredibly sore throat and feeling awful. This morning, I cancelled my office hours and headed to prompt care after dropping off my daughter at school. Sure enough, I have strep. So, today, I will be taking a break whether I want to or not. I have a lot of grading, planning, etc. to do, but feeling like I do, I won’t be able to push through all of it. I’m going to have to rest a bit…no choice in the matter!

    1. That happens from time to time with me as well. Your body gives you signs yet we continuously ignore them. It’s one thing to multitask and it’s another to be burnt out. Thanks for reading & commenting!
