Why Taking Mental Health Days Is Important | With Dignity & Coffee

We can try and pretend like we’re at our best twenty four hours a day, every day of the week, but that’s in all honesty, crap. We all need a day sometimes to just... be.

While it's not always doable to take a day off of work or class, (or life, for that matter) when you have a day off, or even just a few hours to get zen, you should. Be a bit selfish. Because really, taking yourself is the opposite of selfish. When you're at your best, it's not only good for you, but everyone in your life. 

& when in doubt, let the words of tom haverford whisper to you: TREAT YOURSELF.

1// They Help You Refocus
It's easy to forget the 'why' in your day-to-day tasks, especially the less than thrilling ones. Taking a day to zen out will help refocus your energy and remind you of the why. 

2// They Help You Catch Up On Sleep
Let's be real, sometimes all you need is some zzz's, yes? We tend to put sleep on the back burner in our fast-paced lives when it should actually be one of the priorities. When we don't get enough sleep, we put our physical mental health at risk. It's important to stay focused & sharp, and sleep helps with that.  

3// They Leave You Feeling Refreshed
Going back to the re-focus point, when you take a day to just be, you come away from it feeling refreshed and with a new perspective on things, whether it's a specific task or life in general. When you feel refreshed, it's a thousand times easier to get to work. 

You got this.
