Sometimes you just need a break. Whether it be after high school, after university graduation, or a sabbatical during your working career. But you may be asking yourself:
Is it a good idea to take a gap year?
And we’d say yes. Don’t study a university course you hate because you feel you have to. Don’t rush straight into a terrible job after graduation because that’s the logical next step. And don’t struggle through burnout at your current job because you’ll end up resenting it. If you have the means, take a break from your routine.
