So, I read this the week before I took an extra week of leave over the Christmas break. Everything you described resonated with me so much, but I felt silly because I’ve let this happen to me multiple times. After 3 weeks of doing absolutely nothing — I mean nothing, my garden and books were my best friends — I wanted to come back and say thank you for being the last little signal to me that I needed to switch off. I hope your 2023 is magical!
