Take some time off
By Sonya Smith
My tip this week comes straight from my personal experience.
Feeling stressed, tired and overwhelmed? Well I certainly was.
Last week I dreaded each day’s workload and worried about how I would get everything done. Lately I’ve been either covering a meeting each night or brining work home or working past 8 p.m.
My solution was to take some time off. Not a bunch, just Friday.
But what a difference a day makes!
I’ve been able to get caught up on SPJ stuff, was able to go to LA to pick out my new glasses(!), cleaned at home, cleaned both my laptop and desktop computers and even got caught up on some sleep.
No, not everything is fixed. But with the crazy work week I have coming up – the best solution for keeping my sanity was to take a day off. You should try it every now and then!
