On Changing Pace

Last month, after a hiatus from constant writing and freelance work, I realized that I am my own worst enemy. My drive and ambition get in the way of me taking time for myself. So does the need to produce and keep up and not be forgotten.

I will be challenging myself this year to take the last week off each month to just rest—letting my mind and body catch up and recharge. It’s not quite a resolution. Maybe it’s a determination.

I am interested to see how this works out. Wish me luck!

If any of you are trying to incorporate more self-care or taking more breaks/vacations this year, I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
