in a time where uncertainty is at an all-time high, there is no shame in taking a few minutes for you. While the term "vacation" sounds a bit foreign, I'm doing what I can to create my own little staycation right at home. 

while this looks different for everyone, for me it's lounging by the pool when I need a breather, going for a walk, or making a nourishing meal. It's perfectly acceptable to take a day off as a personal day. Run those errands, lounge by the pool, take a hike, and just enjoy the day to yourself. 

I'm a firm believer in this because I myself have experienced burn out. I know that I work my best and give more to my team when I'm well-rested, de-stressed, and. can give it my all.

If you can't give it your all, take a breather and try again the next day. The tasks will still be there. 

This is just a simple but very needed reminder to take a break, a deep breath, and practice some self-love.
