A Short Blogging Break

Turn off the laptop
The world waits beyond your screen
Honor life’s sweet flow

Last summer I wrote a post encouraging blogging breaks
(The Benefits of a Blogging Break).

I made a deal with myself that I’d take a week off every 3 months to relax, go outside, and reconnect with friends and family. Well… the last one was 6 months ago. Oops.

Deadlines are looming on the next two books, and it’s time for a little elbow grease! I’ll be offline for a week or so getting ahead of schedules, enjoying a little reading and a lot of sunshine (I hope).

Have a wonderful week. 🙂

  2. I came running over here because I realize that I miss you and wonder where you’ve gone. Oh. Well. You took your own advice (and advice that I’ve followed and truly appreciate). Hope the sun is shining on you and your break.

  3. I think I’ve got the opposite problem lately–taking too many breaks. I need to get my butt back in gear. 😀 Enjoy your break, Diana!

    Diana, enjoy your break. I am sure it is much deserved – six months without a ‘holiday’ is half a year without a holiday! 🙂

  21. While you are basking in the sun, Diana, I’ll be shoveling 20 inches of March snow that the vile weather people are predicting! Enjoy your time off. Getting ahead of schedule and connecting with family sounds like the ingredients for stress relief. ❤️

    That’s a pretty good idea. You get to take a break while still being consistent. Hmm, I may consider adopting a similar thing.

    • I highly recommend it, Allie, even though I wasn’t very good at following through. If you’re considering it, check out the link (which offers a link to an article by Dollie Freeman). She has some awesome ideas about how and why to break. Have a wonderful week!

    It’s always good to take a break. I recently had a break of almost two months but that was because I got the flu and then I was very weak for a long time, I couldn’t even sit up and work at the computer. Take care!

    • I’ve been known to take flu-related breaks, usually because I get so worn out. Now I try to take the break and prevent the physical collapse. I’m sorry to hear that your recovery took so long. I hope you’re feeling well now. 🙂 Thanks for the kind wishes.

    • Fortunately, Balroop, I can step away pretty easily from the digital world. I always have a list of things on the back burner, and getting the garden ready is a great start. Thanks for the kind wishes. Enjoy your week, my friend. 🙂
