I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not exactly the best when it comes to taking breaks. I always feel like there’s more that needs to be done, and I’ll often find myself working well past my bedtime trying to satisfy this need to be productive.

I read an article the other day which spoke about our growing obsession with the idea of “being busy” and how we often use our busyness as a measure of how meaningful our lives are. I.e. the busier we perceive ourselves to be the more importance or meaning we were able to assign to our lives. I.was.Triggered.

However, I’m learning that taking time out for ourselves is never time wasted or should be seen as time that could have been best spent elsewhere. That being busy doesn’t always equate to productivity and that the pursuit of “busyness” isn’t a goal.

Whenever I invest in myself by taking some time out, even if it’s just to another part of the UK I always come back feeling better. Particularly about myself and where I’m headed.  It’s a great way to generate new ideas, reflect on your journey and give thanks for how far you’ve come. This year I made the conscious decision to make content and meaningful stories my focus, I took up freelancing and had the opportunity to collaborate with some great brands and people which will all be unveiled soon. However, during the pursuit of purpose for ourselves and our lives comes the need to give adequate thought to our work/life balance.

If you’re anything like me, learn to take breaks and do take time to celebrate your journey in anyways that you can. Greece came at the perfect time, I was truly living my best life on this holiday, my melanin was popping and my edges have never been healthier!                                  

Below are some visuals from my stay- Enjoy

  1. Totally resonated with this. So much to be done in our 20’s but we can’t burnout! Thank you for sharing your truth, it helps us be honest with ourselves and move forward in a healthier way ❤️

    1. Thank you for reading Bola, so glad you enjoyed. Most definitely, it’s so easy to overwork ourselves as we try our best to navigate through this period but we have to grow comfortable with knowing when to break and celebrate our successes too


  2. I’m so here for this post. It’s so true – being busy doesn’t always mean we’re being productive and it’s imperative that we take time out for ourselves. By the way your pictures look beautiful!
