If you keep working hard, you may feel burned out. Even the lungs take a pause between breaths. Even the heart takes a break between beats.
If you are totally in synchronicity with the rhythm of the universe, you may go on for a lifetime doing all that you have always been doing. However, when you are out of alignment with the higher consciousness, whatever you do, seems like a struggle and effort.
That is the time take a break, not because you are completely tired and cant work any more.
Take a break to get in touch with ‘self’ and reconnect with the greater consciousness. These moments are precious. You may or may not take an expensive holiday. All you need is an ambience which does not distract you and give you a chance just to be. It can be a remote place, or a room without social media, television and distractions so that you can turn inwards and reconnect to the ‘self’.
You will get amazing guidance, answers and solutions in the moments of solitude and inspiration to bounce back to your best.
Of course, if you learn to make meditation a way of life, the entire lifespan is a beautiful break for you.
If you wish to remain stressed out, even a well planned holiday can become so stressful that you yearn for one more break to cope up with the accumulated stress.
A genuine, well-intended ‘break’ from routine can facilitate a great ‘breakthrough’ in life!
