On the train ride home from NYC, I was reflecting on my trip and realized that in order to avoid fatigue and boredom and ultimately save the quality of our work, it is necessary to save some time for ourselves.

We take mini-vacations during the day for refills on coffee and at the end of the day to curl up with a book that carries us away from the daily grind. I personally pull out the knitting needles and yarn.

Time away gives us time to refresh our minds and emotions before we recommit to our homes, schedules and callings.

So we shouldn’t hesitate to set up the away email for a bit.
