|When was the last time you took rest? not on the road but hey, it isn’t a bad idea!|
I have to admit that I haven’t been taking enough personal time off! I always wanted to have a good time out, perhaps for a movie or shopping or may just even sometime watching the movies I have on my hard disk. But, I have never really taken enough time to rest and do things I love!
I have been occupied with a lot of activities lately and ever since I moved to a new place, I needed sometime to adjust myself to the changes and I;m doing perfectly fine now. But, I have been working hard to plan what should come next. That alone takes most of my time. Whenever, I decide to just PAUSE and relax, my inner voice would tell me that I could make use of that time to just do something beneficial. This voice can be very irritating as it makes me feel guilty whenever I choose to just REST.
Have you seen someone ”listening” to television or movies? That’s what I do. While my mom watches movie, I would be listening to the story, not really watching as something else would have been occupying me. In fact, I got this habit from my family as we don’t really watch something the proper way, as in sitting in front of the TV, on a comfy chair with NO telecommunication tools (of course I’m referring to those mobile phones and tablets).
I have decided to start having a personal time off from this week onward! I think Saturdays should be my off days! I wouldn’t want to WORK on that day or stress myself about planning what’s next for the coming week. I just want to have the time for myself!
When is your personal time off? Are you resting enough or are you just feeling as guilty as me when you decide to have a break?
