Infographic: Reasons to Take a Career Break

Feeling constantly stressed about work is not a good pattern to be in. You may experience this burnout at any stage of your career due to a lack of purpose at work or unfavorable conditions like a poor manager or demanding schedule. If you’ve dreamed of a getaway to escape your work issues, it may be time to consider a career break.

Career breaks aren’t just running away from your problems. Many people take career breaks to start a family, travel the world, volunteer, or pursue a side hustle. Breaks don’t necessarily mean you aren’t working either, you may find you have a profitable hobby or enjoy working a part-time job. There are many ways to make your career break a valuable experience.

The benefits of taking a break from your professional life can be outstanding. If your health has come second to your job for a while, a career break is the perfect opportunity to refocus and recharge. You can also take this time to learn a skill you’ve always wanted to learn like a new language or how to code. Build up your personal network during this time so that you will be ready to return to your career with new experiences and connections.

This infographic created by Bestow highlights some reasons to take a career break and how to successfully return to a new, meaningful career path.
