How To Take a Healthy Career Break
Work can weigh you down. If you’ve ever felt bored and anxious at work and found yourself staring at the clock and doing anything but your work, you know what this feels like. This is normal.
Should You Take a Career Break?
However, if you’ve found yourself hating your job, dreading your work, and constantly thinking about something else you’d rather be doing, it might be time to give yourself some space and consider a career break. Breaks allow you to take some time away, think about why you’re unhappy, and ultimately come back recharged.
Best Reasons for a Break
There are a ton of reasons to take a career break, whether it’s to stay home with your kids, pursue a passion project, see a different part of the world, learn a new skill, work your way around the globe, or just relax.
Regardless of the reason, know that it’s completely normal. (84% of millennials say they plan to take a career break at some point!)
With that said, leaving your career temporarily can be scary, and there are a number of factors you should consider before doing so. Bestow compiled a guide on the pros and cons of different types of career breaks and how to re-enter the workforce after one. Check it out.
