We just got back from the best trip with our family to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary! We created so many new memories, and had a great time. While we were there, we took a few days off from working so that we could really be present, and not be plugged into social media.
Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE our job and getting to connect with you all and interact, but it definitely weighs on us when we are constantly on our phones and checking messages, posts, planning out content, etc. Even if you don’t have a job on social media, you probably feel the pressure and anxiety that can come with it.
For the longest time, we had not take ONE day off of work. We would post every single day, no matter what, but in June, we went on a trip for our birthday, and decided to take two days off. We didn’t check email, get on Instagram, or anything work related.
At first, it was a little anxiety-ridden because we are so accustomed to always being on our phones, but after a few hours, it felt so nice, and by the second day, we felt so much better.
So, on this trip, we decided to take days off again, and it was so needed, and so worth it! Even if it is not social media, it is good to step back from work, whatever that looks like for you. Whether it is going to a desk job, being a mom, volunteering, etc., we all need time away from it to be better at it on a daily basis.
We are thinking of taking at least one day off every 2 weeks, and think it will help us with a better overall mental health!
On a side note, this pink neon cropped sweatshirt is SO cute and comfy! It also comes in other colors, too, like neon green. We have size xs in it, and it would be cute with shorts or leggings, too! We have the smallest size on in these stretchy skinny jeans and love how comfy they are. You can wear them to travel in, without being uncomfortable!
We found these great and affordable pieces at Walmart. We love that we can find really cute pieces for fall for usually under $30! They also offer free two-day delivery on a lot of their pieces, and in-store pickup, which we use all of the time!
