Signs You Need a Break


Sometimes it can be hard to admit to yourself that you need a break, with work expectations, family obligations and societal pressures it’s no surprise that many of us don’t take regular breaks even if it is just for a relaxing weekend away. Roughly one third of adults in the UK don’t take their full annual leave entitlement and that not only impacts their mental health but their physical health too, being ‘fatigued’ and experiencing ‘burn-out’ are phrases we hear way too often. So, how do you know when you seriously need a break? The infographic below will help you identify some tell-tale signs…

Besides, holidays really are great, spending time with loved ones, exploring new places, creating memories and most importantly relaxing and pressing that reset button. Go on, take a break.

    This is so true! My husband and I recently took a weekend break to Paris and it helped our mental health and marriage no end! It won’t be a frequent thing as we want most of our holidays to be with our children but once in awhile it’s ok.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
