Transitioning into a new job or role can be stressful. People speak in a language you just don’t understand (hello acronym city). I pride myself as a fast learner but I must admit, it’s been a rough couple of months. I am having a George Constanza “Serenity Now” moment and really need a break from the grind. Hence this weekend is all about getting away and learning to unplug. That’s a hard thing to do isn’t it?
Unplugging from work or from being accessible 24/7 is difficult when your OCD-self is the one putting on the pressure to be super responsive and proactive. So repeat after me, perfectionism is impossible, say it again…perfectionism is impossible. Did it work? F-it, I am headed to LA.
- EAT. Looking forward hanging out with pals and grabbing an In and Out burger
- SHOP. Perform a little retail therapy and peruse the Tory Burch Resort Collection Sale (I am particularly fond of these booties)
- DO. Find a pool, sit by it, repeat.
How do you unplug and unwind from the work week?
