10 Signs You Might Need a Break

It can be hard to know when you need a break. Sometimes, it's not until we hit our breaking point that we realize how exhausted we are. Especially, in today's society and "grind culture" it can be easy to push through and ignore the signs that we need to take a break. If you're feeling any of the below, it might be time for a break:

  1. You're constantly exhausted, both mentally and physically

  2. You're having trouble focusing or completing tasks

  3. You avoid tasks all together because they feel too overwhelming

  4. You're feeling irritable or on edge

  5. Your sleep patterns have changed

  6. You spend most of your nights dreading your work or school the next

  7. You feel physically tense

  8. You are experiencing frequent headaches

  9. You feel like you have lost your appetite

  10. You are catching more colds or other illnesses

If any of these sound familiar, take a step back and reassess your current situation. Maybe you need a mental health day, or maybe you need to adjust your workload. Regardless, it's important to listen to your body and give yourself the break you deserve before you hit burnout.

Happy resting! :)

Take care. Break. Relax. Recharge. You got this! :).
