Why You Should Take Time Off Blogging

Taking time off blogging




I took some time off recently from blogging and I have to say that I am extremely happy with the outcome. I thought taking time off would make me miss out on things and lose my flow but luckily, it did the complete opposite.

Re-energize 
Taking a week off has enabled me to sit back and relax. Of course I have other things to do like uni work however, there was one thing off my shoulders. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE blogging, but sometimes you just need some time to take a breath.

Me Time
Not blogging for a week or even thinking about blogging has made me realise for how long I haven't had a day just for my self. I had a lovely pamper day at home, went for a walk and even read a book! This allowed me to de-stress and catch up on other things that I enjoy.

Catch Up
Blogging can take up a lot of time, especially when you're like me and you constantly planning, going on social media and taking random pictures. I had time to catch up on my uni work, house work a little (well I did a huge clear out) and caught up with my friends.

Refresh
Once I go back to blogging, I firstly wrote out a plan for everything. I organised my blogging diary by planning out when I'm going to post and reserved time for just blogging stuff such as take pictures, edit pictures, emails etc. I noticed that I had a lot more ideas about what I can write about and for some reason planning and writing was a lot easier. It's just like taking time off school when you come back you are more motivated, and that's what I felt like.

Taking time off blogging isn't a bad thing at all. Yes you may miss out for a few days but when you come back, it's so much better. When you are feeling a little too stressed about blogging, I would recommend taking time off completely. Don't feel bad about it, your readers will understand and you will come back so much more relaxed and motivated than ever!

I also wrote a post about what it's like to blog whilst at uni which you can catch up on it here!
