A day out

Have you ever felt the sensation of getting all burned out after too much of prolonged work?

I did. That's why I took a day out yesterday to visit an adventure park in the city with my girlfriend.

It was a quiet place with little cottages, dining areas and some adventure games like Zipline, Monkey Crawling, Free Fall and more.

We did a few of them and it was super fun. On top of that, we played badminton together for the first time. It was amazing.

But enough about us, where I'm going with this is that taking day offs like this and going someplace nice takes stress off you.

It's good to bust your ass working for something you like. However, if you don't take time to cool off you'll have a meltdown, sooner or later.

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Taking a day off from your work doesn't hurt. It only increases your productivity when you come back working after that day.

Take some time to go somewhere new like an amusement park, a resort, or to the beach, or do some activity you enjoy like trekking or biking.

It'll recharge your mind to tackle all the load that's coming your way.

Try it. It's just a day. Won't hurt.

Sometimes, cooling off is the best way to restart your engine.
