Life is just a little too much sometimes.
Eleven months ago, you started this year full of energy and hope. You were ready to conquer the world anew and had more drive than you knew what to do with. But now, you are just tired. Your energy is about gone and you are ready for a break. You might need a vacation. Here are a few signs that you might be in need of a little rest and relaxation.
Are you tired? It seems easy to tell, but have you noticed people telling you more and more that you look tired, even when you get a full night’s sleep? You may be noticing dark circles around your eyes or they might even appear sunken in. If this is you, you could probably use a vacation, or at least a mental health day.
Find yourself making mistakes more often at work? When you are tired and stressed, you aren’t working to your full potential. Stress can turn even the simplest and most mundane task into something difficult if you are exhausted and not mentally present. Before your boss starts to take notice and gives you the boot, you might want to get away.
Motivation is a big one. Do you find yourself not finding interest in things that you used to? Your lack of motivation lately could be due to too much mental stress. Feeling sapped is common during this time of the year. But don’t fret and don’t give up. Take a small vacation and reset before you getting back into it. A little vacation never hurt anyone and the benefits could be extravagant.
