Breaks are nothing else but free time you should use to vent, get inspired or relax from your job responsibilities. Some of us, I’d even think most of us, don’t really take it as such. We just miss-spend it having lunch with colleagues.
Be careful with invites that will set you on top of the social pyramid but won’t let you enjoy yourself and get inspired. We tend to say yes to social reunions, events, coctails, bars and all sorts of social offerings just to feel ‘in’ or part of a group. If you don’t really feel like going, don’t. Put down all invitations that don’t bring inspiration to your life, and you’ll feel so much better.
