A value is something that you believe to be fundamentally important. When we honour our values, it can give us a real sense of purpose. They not only motivate us to take action but the action that is right for us. Ignoring or disrespecting them makes us feel stuck, stressed and frustrated.
Taking time out to travel, discover new places and experience new things can give an individual a completely different perspective on what is important to them in their life. It’s a time of self-discovery and reflection and can be hugely beneficial on lots of levels: personally, and professionally. In fact, those people who take a mid-career break often return to work feeling more inspired and not just refreshed but renewed.
