Have you ever tried staying in after work for seven days straight? Maybe you’ve tried it for two. Well, the purpose of staying in for a week is to give yourself a break from the to-do lists, that always keeps you on the go. Especially when you’re super tired after work. It can feel like everybody and everything are controlling your time and happiness.


Often when we’re sick we’re forced to stay in have the down time and rest that we so desperately need. But why wait till we’re burnt out in sick?
