Time For Vacation 1

Sometimes in order for our #BlackGirlMagic to flourish, we need a vacation to recharge, regroup, and come back to work reinvigorated. Unfortunately, some of us have an inability to put themselves first amidst always doing for others and we miss the vital signs that it’s time for a little R&R.

We all may aim to be superwoman at some point in our lives, but you can’t save the day if you don’t set some time aside for self-care — in this case, a much-needed vacation. Not sure if you should book the next flight out and get away for a little while? Check out our signs that a vacation should be on your horizon.

You Spend Your Time Daydreaming

Thinking about sandy beaches, peaceful silence and pure relaxation while you’re at work, shuffling your kids around or sitting in traffic, is a clear sign that you need a vacation.

Daydreaming allows you to escape to a mental vacation, but sometimes that’s just not enough. Stop thinking about all the places you wish you were and things you want to do…and actually make the effort to make them a reality.
