Today, I'm taking a personal day.

I am staying home to drink tea, write, take care of a few chores, and maybe even play video games (Spider-Man for PS4 anyone?)

Why am I telling you this?

It seems as if people only take personal days once it's too late. They wait until they're exhausted, stressed out, sleep deprived, overworked, and sick.

Instead, why not be proactive and give yourself the chance to take a breath once in a while?

After all, we're only human and, no matter whom you work for, you won't be of any use to them if you're unhappy and sick.

Consider taking a personal day before you need it.

A little self-care can go a long way.
