Today will be short because I am going to take my own advice and take a break! I started today's post this morning, like the 8 mornings before this, and it just wasn't coming together - so I took a break.
Usually it does me a lot of good to walk away from something that is frustrating me or just not coming together. Sometimes my break is just a quick one - I will step outside for some fresh air; or tackle a small item on my to-do list - that takes less than 10 minutes; or drink some tea.
Other breaks are longer - like today's break from writing. The hubs was ready for lunch so we went out and enjoyed some time together where we didn't have to make a decision and it didn't require unpacking a box. We just moved, so we are surrounded by boxes and sometimes you need a break from them as well.
Once we returned from a fabulous lunch, I unpacked a few boxes so I could feel productive. Then I spent some time on the phone with a friend. By the time I was done talking with my sweet peep I had decided that my intended post was not going to get composed today.
Instead, I am taking a much needed break and I am going to hang out with my hubs!!! Here's a fun picture, of a friend's sweet dog, to remind us to take a break and play some ball; hug your dog; watch some TV or take a nap!!!! I give you permission to have some fun or rest!!!
What do you like to do when you take a break from a project or something that is frustrating you?
