Short breaks...

I didn't really upgrade my blog of late as I was real busy with work. Last week seems to pass so fast as I was trying to complete my work before I go for a four days leaves. Well, tomorrow and Tuesday will be long days too but then, before I know it, I'm on leave already. :) Well, no grand plans with my leaves as it's just another family outing where I will bring my family out for a getaway for a couple of days.
nope..we are not going there ... :(

I remember I attended a course some years back and we are taught on how to identify our personalities. If I am not wrong, I belong to the 'kinetic' type of personality where I cannot focus for long as well as I needed to experiment, touch, feel and see the 'thing' in order to understand. Some other folks are the visual type, where they can visualise the entire concept or idea so vividly in their mind.

For someone like me, definitely I cannot sit for long. So, usually, I try to remove all distractions from me and the environment and focus on a short period to complete something. Once done, I will take a short breather like a tea break or a short chat before I continued with my work. That also explains why I usually go back late after work, as I need another hour to complete my task unless I got an appointment. LOL


I find that for personalities like me, constant short breaks helps me to focus on my tasks as well as helps me to relax helps me a lot in trying to resolve issues. Short breaks helps me to unwind and regained back my composure if I am stressed. It clears my mind and most of time, I managed to find a way out or ideas for something that's I'm stuck with, when I am relax after a breather. After all our mind is a muscle and just like an heated car engine, it needed to cool down before resuming a journey. We also needed to rest our muscles after completing a set of workout before resuming the next repetitive sets.

I love short breaks ...... and it will be a short working week for me. Looking forward to my long break!! :) Have a good week, folks!
