Take a break

This is quite important for all of us I was going to not produce a blog for August 2023.  Why?  Well because it is generally a holiday month and I did not know what to cover.  But in that, I have realised that taking a break is the topic.

I have been recently reminded of how important actually taking a break is. Be it from social media, work, friends, baby making etc… the list goes on.

The reminder came from my son who is just starting work full-time as an apprentice mechanic.  He mentioned to me that he gets four weeks’ holiday but actually, he won’t need them.  Oh boy, I need to educate him first of course he gets paid for holidays and if he does not take the time out then he is likely to burn out.

He has been at college for the last year and even during the breaks at the end of each term he has been working.  So, for a treat, we are both taking a break from home and we are going to visit a friend.  I am really looking forward to it. 

The lesson here is that we all need a time out or a break from our usual day-to-day life so that we can recharge our batteries.
