The work-home routine takes a toll, doesn’t it? You try to reach work on time, get stuck in the traffic, work all day glued to screens, get stuck in traffic again, have dinner, go to bed and repeat the cycle for the next five or six days. Not taking anything away from making a better career or having a great professional life, sometimes there are other things that require our attention. Sometimes we need a timeout, a day or two off, away from the city, from the noise, from this concrete jungle.
