Sometimes, we just need a break. If you’ve been doing something for a long time, it’s easy to get exhausted, burned out or even disillusioned. A growing idea in business is taking sabbaticals.

Sabbaticals are different from vacations in that during a sabbatical, you usually do something else. Something that you’ve been wanting to do, something stimulating, something creative. Something that feeds your soul. It could be volunteering, writing, traveling or even work in a completely different field. Researchers have concluded that the return on investing in a sabbatical is rejuvenation, new applicable ideas and insights and more happiness in life. Here’s an article on that research.

As some of you may know, I took some time off last year for health reasons. But even before then, I was pursuing some life-long dreams that involved a lot of different kinds of creativity and engaging with new friends and colleagues.

Now, I’m happy to announce that I’m back doing design with a new company. Media Hounds Creative is a marketing firm that provides branding, graphic design, website development, video production and printing services. So please call on us if you have such a need.
