Actually, take a break
Taking a break is a great opportunity to try to do something you’ve never done before. Go somewhere unexpected, try a new activity, or eat food you’ve never tried before. Take out your “to do list” and try to put a check on at least a couple of things you haven’t been able to do because of work.
