Your body and your brains need a vacation and time away from stress!
Whatever your job is, eventually you will feel some stress and mental fatigue which inevitably leads to some form of unhappiness. Waking up early is part of the normal everyday routine for most people working in the city. Travelling every day in traffic hassles, racing to conference meetings, returning endless telephone calls or trying to meet those high pressure deadlines for your boss leads to stress. As Property Managers, we deal with stress everyday so time away from the office is imperative.
However, working so hard for whatever reason, including those long hours spent in the work place can be hazardous to your health. You must take the time to plan time away from your job. Everyone has bills that need to be paid on time, not to mention the expenses for your kids schooling, household expenses and sometimes unexpected situations cause financial hardships as well.
You want to do well at work and working hard can earn you that big promotion you have have been dreaming about but keep it in perspective. The last thing you want, is to burn out and start to resent your work environment which can lead to thoughts of quitting when all you really need is time away from the stress.
Take that much needed long weekend and escape to the mountains or to the lake and enjoy the time with your family. If you can’t afford a mini vacation do a stay-cation in your own city and discover lots of new adventures you never knew existed at your fingertips. When you are at work, make sure to always take a break, if even for a short walk around the block to get some fresh air.
