First day back after a week in Croatia (wet, but warm, thanks for asking). I am still trying to settle back in and catch up on what I should be doing.
But I am still feeling the benefit of an active holiday in a new place, and forgetting about work. The stress level is down!
The benefit is more than that. I have met a number of new people, some of whom had interesting stories. So I know more about the arguments on climate change, about life in rural Ireland and about art.
So although this was in no way business related, the holiday also had the benefit that networking can have of opening up my ideas.
The moral? Make sure you take a break from time to time, and switch off the email!
