Take a break from the usual rhythm of life.
Given our hectic lifestyle these days, the well-known Chinese saying, “Taking a break is meant to recharge you and prepare you for the journey ahead”, could never have been more accurate. Today, the meaning of taking a break has taken on a whole new meaning with the growing popularity of a sabbatical.
What is a sabbatical and why do people take them?
If you are feeling overworked or demotivated, a sabbatical could be the ideal option for you, as it essentially refers to a type of long leave where you get to take significant time off from work. While you could have your own reasons for a sabbatical, the most common ones include a desire to travel, making a difference to the society, learning a new skill, spending time with your loved ones, avoiding burnout, and discouragement.
A sabbatical can be a great way for you to gain new ideas, new inspiration and a fresh perspective. It can rejuvenate you and ignite a zest for life and work again.
If travelling is your key purpose, start planning and pack your bags! Whether you’re taking a breather for three months, six months or more, here are some interesting plans that could be of assistance to you, and who knows, you might even end up discovering a new passion.
