Goal of the Week #42: Take a Break

lunchThis week’s goal: Take a break. Its the busiest time of the year. You have extra holiday obligations – school and work functions, parties, shopping, etc., not to mention all of those end-of-the-year deadlines. This is me, the goal coach, saying it’s not only okay to take break during the hustle and bustle of the holiday’s, it’s practically mandatory.

So, one day this week, for your lunch hour, actually go to lunch … don’t run errands or work through lunch at your desk. Even better, go to lunch with a friend. Another option: Take a coffee break that involves leaving your office and getting a cup of coffee. You can also curl up with a good book one evening or leave the laptop – and your work – at work.

Everything will get done, as long as you are mindful of your obligations, make lists, and take care of yourself.

What kind of break will you take this week?
