I don’t think there’s anyone out there who doesn’t understand the need for a break now and then. Whether a physical or a mental break, today’s world is loud and elaborate, and always shifting. It’s a whirlwind that cares very little about your need to stay sane.
During the last month, I’ve given considerable thought to when I last had a real break, and honestly couldn’t remember. I’m not writing this to gain sympathy, nor am I writing it to excuse the month-long (or perhaps more) lapse in time that I’ve gone without diligently creating something within this space. Rather I’d like for it to serve as a reminder to (mostly) everyone to take the time to reflect, listen to your body, and take care of yourself.
