Um dos grandes objectivos desta viagem é não planear. Não queremos ter uma itinerário fixo como normalmente fazemos quando vamos de férias 15 dias. Sabemos que queremos viajar pelo Sudeste Asiático, mas a escolha dos países é feita à medida que vamos caminhando. ° A ideia é não sabermos onde vamos estar na próxima semana, quantos dias vamos ficar em cada cidade, se vamos prolongar o nosso visto, porque simplesmente adoraramos este país. ° O único que planeamos com alguma antecedência são os workaway, para garantir que há disponibilidade e que seremos aceites. ° Mas isto de não planear é um grande desafio, principalmente para mim (Amélia), pois gosto de planear, organizar e pensar quase todas as minhas decisões. ° Mas o lema desta viagem é não fazer planos! ° "O plano é não ter plano" @doforloveproject  #travelovers  #travelcouple  #doglovers  #dogfriendly  #gapyear  #iatiseguros  #couple  #friends  #hộian  #vietnam  #careerbreak

Home is where the ❤️is! I surprised Rory by coming back to the UK a week early from Bali so I could spend his birthday with him #surprise  #husband  #love  #noplacelikehome  #sabbatical  #manchester  #careerbreak  #hehadnoidea  #jetlaggedtothemax 

After working as a hotelier for 13 years, I took a break at the time of my marriage and childbirth. Soon I found that I need to do more than just homemaking. I started to publish my organizing skills on YouTube. Some planning prior to the launch of my channel @simplifyyourspace  — really helped. Losing my parents early was very shocking for me and then unsettling phase of changing cities due to jobs. There were phases of uncertainty, chaos and desperation. I chose to stabilize myself one step at a time and not to be bogged down. Now, the channel has grown to close to a 100 videos with more than 0.6 million subscribers. The best part of this journey has been the interaction with so many talented and knowledgeable people, which inspires me to strive to do more. It is easy to get sucked into daily routines of being a full-time homemaker, which is a great task by itself. But you must strive beyond. Why? Because you can. Contemplating a career restart is the most daunting part especially if you’ve been out of the workforce for a while. You may not know what your options are and how well those options would fit you. Simplify your thoughts to reach your goals in simpler ways. Pen down your goals and plan to achieve it. You will get there. This is a shout out to all the women out there who want to start fresh or restart after a break possibly due to marriage or kids. There will be challenges when you decide to restart your career, but you need to stand tall and hold your ground. Do you have any inspiring story to share? Click the link in bio 👉 http://bit.ly/BustAMythwithAshu Women's Web is partnering with Accenture India in an initiative that aims at busting the myth that women on a career break cannot be ambitious or committed about returning to work. @accentureindiacareers  I am inviting @riddhikaul  @aanchshetty  and @kanupriya.jain  to join us and share a #BustAMyth  story of a woman who has returned to work after a break. This story could be your own or of another woman you admire. #bustamyth  #simplifyyourspace  #accentureindia  #career  #careerbreak  #workfromhome  #restart  #workingmoms  #returningtowork  #inspiringwomen  #inspiringstories  #motivation 

Find someone who makes even a trip to the supermarket fun, then see the world with them 😍 - Will and I flew into Christchurch and were picked up by my wonderful uncle (don’t you just love a ‘drop your bags and hug me!’ airport moment?) who has lived here for 20+ years, and we’ve had a beautiful weekend in Akaroa as well as planning our time here. We’ve changed our outgoing flights from Auckland to Christchurch as everyone we’ve spoken to has said that five weeks isn’t enough to do both the south and the north island, and it’s looking like that was the best decision! Tomorrow we’re driving to Lake Tekapo, and as we were heading to bed this evening (I’m up as I’m an insomniac through and through) Will said, “off on another adventure in the morning!” That sums it up ☺️ if you have any NZ South Island recommendations (we’ll be travelling all over for five weeks) then please let us know! #MegSaysTravel  ed. by @bethsandlandpresets 

Had the most perfect day, we ♥️ New Zealand!

Thank you for all the send off / despedida! Missing you guys already!!! See you again soon! 🇵🇭 😁💙😘✈️ 🇺🇸 #careerbreak  #back2school  #roadtoLLM 

We had two separate recommendations from friends to visit Chandigarh we’re so glad that we followed their advice! 🇮🇳 Laid out in the 1950s as one of the first planned cities in post-independence India, Chandigarh’s grid system is easy to navigate, incredibly green with parks and gardens, and has lovely wide pavements with trees offering plenty of shade! 🇮🇳 We only had a couple nights here, and our main goals were to visit the Nek Chand Rock Garden and the Capitol Complex, designed (as was much of the city) by Swiss-French architect, Le Corbusier. 🇮🇳 When numerous villages were cleared to make way for Chandigarh, Nek Chand (a roads inspector by day) collected and recycled materials from demolition sites and, across a vast area of forest land, he created a fairytale kingdom, with mini-buildings, waterfalls and thousands of statues/figurines. He managed to keep his efforts secret for many years and when discovered, it came under threat of demolition itself, as it was illegally constructed on government land. Fortunately, the authorities relented and ended up employing Chand to complete his work. It is truly stunning! 🇮🇳 At the other end of the scale, the Capitol Complex designed by Le Corbusier is an epic example of brutalist concrete architecture much of the original city was constructed in this style, but this particular area, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is very impressive. It’s not possible to wander around the complex unaccompanied, but you can turn up and register for one of three daily guided tours (free of charge) with no hassle. Unfortunately, we couldn’t enter the buildings due to renovation work, but the exteriors are apparently the stand out component. The Shadow Tower (8th picture) was particularly welcome on this relentlessly sunny day! 🇮🇳 Thanks Helen and Lucy for the recommendation!!! 🇮🇳 🇮🇳 🇮🇳 🇮🇳 🇮🇳 🇮🇳 #chandigarh  #nekchandrockgarden  #lecorbusierarchitecture  #recyclingart  #brutalistarchitecture 

Day 57. Colourtation!!!! Today I played around with a different type of mindfulness method - #colourtation  , developed by neuroscientist and psychologist @stanrodski  . The method applies the key principles of mindfulness whilst also incorporating pattern, repetition and control - essential elements to ensuring the brain is at ease. I spent half an hour coloring whilst listening to an alpha sound designed to further support the brain to achieve a relaxed and creative state. I found this activity super enjoyable and relaxing! My kids colour all the time and I remember it being an activity that I really enjoyed when I was younger so I’m very happy to have found it again! I’ll definitely be incorporating this method into my self-care tool-kit moving forward! Who else loves coloring in and has anyone tried colourtation before? If so - what did you think? #beatingburnout  #firstbest  #burntout  #365daysofputtingmyselffirstbest  #number1  #survivingtothriving  #stress  #stressedout  #stressedoutmom  #health  #lookingaftermyself  #lifeistooshort  #selflove  #selfcare  #me  #bestversionofme  #careerbreak  #psychology  #rest  #relaxation  #mindfulness  #workhardresthard  #healthymind  #change  #personalpower

Day 48, 🇧🇴 La Paz, Bolivia Today there was time to explore more of La Paz, so I booked on to a city tour. The tour took us to Valley of the Moon - a vast area on the outskirts of the city with unique rock formations created by the erosion of mountains. We also stopped at San Pedro prison, made famous by the excellent book ‘Marching Powder’ and the fact that, in the past, tourists could take tours of the prison and even stay there with prisoners. It was even listed in Lonely Planet at one point! We also took in more views of the city from more of the cable car network, explored the witches market and visited the presidential buildings to learn a bit about the political situation in the country. #backpacking  #backpacker  #travelling  #trip  #roundtheworld  #travel  #careerbreak  #wanderlust  #exploring  #instatravel  #adventure  #solotravel  #travelgram  #igtravel  #explore  #travelphotography  #gadventures  #southamerica  #bolivia  #lapaz  #valleyofthemoon 

Day 47, 🇧🇴 La Paz, Bolivia Today we spent the morning mountain biking down ‘Death Road’ - not your average Monday morning! Death Road is a dirt track in the mountains on the outskirts of the Amazon. In the past two way traffic would navigate this narrow route, and it gets its name from the fact that around 300 people would die every year from the vehicles falling over the edge. In 2007 it was replaced by a new safer, wider tarmac road. Now, while some vehicles still use the original road it is mainly used for an exhilarating downhill mountain biking route. Lily, Andrew, Adrian and I began at 4,670m altitude and rode 50km all the way down to 1,200m altitude. The start was cold and framed by snow capped mountains , the end hot and humid at the edge of the Amazon jungle. On the way we passed through cloud forests and deep valleys, trying not to get too distracted from the rocky, narrow track. The best section was particularly narrow and passed a waterfall - this part was featured on Top Gear in the past. The route was almost entirely downhill so very little peddling was required! A great day out of the city. #backpacking  #backpacker  #travelling  #trip  #roundtheworld  #travel  #careerbreak  #wanderlust  #exploring  #instatravel  #adventure  #solotravel  #travelgram  #igtravel  #explore  #travelphotography  #gadventures  #southamerica  #bolivia  #lapaz  #deathroad  #deathroadbiking  #enhancebiking

I wanted to describe the word “MOM” with the best available adjective. But then I realized that MOM is not just a word, but an emotion. It can’t be described but can only be felt heartfully. Juggling between the life of a mom and an entrepreneur isn’t an easy task. They are the superheroes we meet every day! WSquare, in partnership with MMA, proudly launches India’s first 'What Mothers Want Conclave' addressing the supermoms, who are homepreneurs, or taking a career break and looking forward to fresh opportunities. The conclave is chaired by a community of women leaders who are ready to take the supermoms under their wing, mentor them and be their role models so that they can begin their second innings in the business world. The forum aims to make moms financially independent by walking them down the memory lane of established mompreneurs present and with various other masterclasses by radical women!

Being a new mom, i devoted my entire time caring for my daughter. Six months passed after my delivery that's when your paid maternity ends too. I was one of the few who got the privilege, since the act got passed just few days after I delivered. I decided I will go on loss of pay to take care of my daughter. I wanted to be part of every milestone of her during her first year. 🎖️One year passed and I was happy that was again placed into the same project as I was before maternity. Things had changed, I had to gear up myself, learn and keep me updated with the changing technology. I managed this and baby at home to an extent. 🎖️Inorder to keep me stress free, I got myself into reading books. I discovered a new world. But writing gave me a breakthrough. I started a blog writing articles on parenting which would help new moms. I wrote for a couple of mom- baby platforms @momspresso  @mybabychakra  and also @womensweb  which recognised the writer in me by publishing on their website.My articles were received well. I started reviewing the books I read and slowly I took a bigger step to write reviews for bigger publishing houses like @penguinindia  @srishtipub  @notion.press  🎖️I started participating in blogging contests and bloghops to keep my writing at a regular basis. 🎖️I owe a lot to @blogchatter  And @supersocialbiz  for their competitions that kept me going and giving me the confidence. 🎖️Them comes micro Blogging and influencing. I did that quite well too. Though I won't say that I made it big, I was able to make few heads turn Genuinely. 🎖️I realised that this is where I belong. I took a decision to quit my job and take up writing. 🎖️I am really happy to see where I stand today. The journey has been having few ups and downs, but the results have been amazing. 🎖️I even got an opportunity to be the official Blogger for @starsportsindia  for their @prokabaddi  . Which is another feather on the cap. #thatmadrasmom  #sindhuvinodnarayan  #bustamyth  #careerbreak  #gratitude  #careershift  #writing  #myjourney  #momblogger  #momsofinstagram  #chennaimommyblogger  #chennaimoms  #chennaiinfluencer  #tues20augaaj  #momsofindia  #momswhowrite  #letalkinz  #instamoms  #mommiesofig

People should explain a long gap between jobs in a resume 📃 . By briefly explaining the reason why you’ve left the job market for an extended period, you can avoid passing the wrong message and tell the employer that you’ve been productive during your career break . If you took time off to travel or study abroad, even better. You may use those experiences to boost your resume. Some information you may consider adding in your CV is: 1️⃣Any volunteering and freelance work 2️⃣Blogging & social media activities 3️⃣Paid jobs performed in another language 4️⃣New hard & soft skills acquired Would like to know how to put this in your resume? Visit Lynx’s blog this Thursday . Photo by Roman Synkevych

Have you taken some time off to study another language in a foreign country or to travel the world? 🌏 After months or years away, you’ve decided that you should settle down and start to look for a new job. By now, you may be wondering how to talk about a gap in your resume. According to Michael Page, “if the gap you have to explain is due to a break you took to go travelling, it should be easy for you to spin this positively. Many employers will appreciate the fact that you’ve been travelling before you apply for a role in their organisations”. There are many ways to address international experience on the resume.

For more than 20 years, Margaret Seery had worked in the tech sector, steering projects, running labs, and leading teams. But she took a hiatus at the turn of the century to raise her three kids. Now, after 19 years, she’s going back to work, and the 61-year-old mom is feeling excited—“like a kid on their first day of first grade,” she says. Across the United States and beyond, days like these have finally arrived. More and more, women who took job hiatuses are getting back in the game. Given that research shows companies with more women leaders in all roles perform better than those that are less diverse, this return offers firms the opportunity many know they need. But organizations are still grappling with how to properly train and place anyone who has been on a long hiatus. Read more about the issue—and what some companies are doing about it—in my cover story for the newest installment of Korn Ferry’s Briefings magazine.

New jumper, $14 from Fred Meyer (think TESCO). Boyfriend not a fan. But boyfriend has no taste and is sporting a picnic blanket as it did actually get cold in the evening. #holidays  #fredmeyer  #knitwear  #bargain  #vacation  #oregon  #bigustour  #toldyouso  #fishermanchic  #uschic  #iloveit  #picnicblankets  #evenings  #careerbreak  #ohsolucky 

Feeling Proud I haven’t gone back to the rat race after finishing my last job because I have chosen to take time out to upskill myself. Today I have completed my course - yay!! 🤩 Really excited to be entering into the next phase of putting my knowledge into practice, supporting small businesses with their social media marketing and enjoying the flexibility of running my own business. #careerbreak  #careerchange  #certificate  #techpixies  #sparkleandthrive  #techpixieswag  #learning  #alwayslearning  #lifelonglearning  #flexiblelearning  #onlinelearning  #flexibleworking  #flex  #skills  #newskills  #upskilling  #selfbelief  #newstartup  #newbusinessowner  #socialmediamanager  #socialmediaconsultant  #womeninbusinessrock  #womenempoweringwomen  #smartgoals  #shemeansbusiness  #shesback  #mondaymotivation  #cmh_living

I don’t think people recognised me at the gym this morning without my little sidekicks (or maybe it was just because my orbital myositis has flared up again 👁🤦🏻‍♀️), I felt a bit strange if I’m honest and kept checking around me for non-existent children! 🙈 I’m so proud of how this one has taken to school so far, and I’m going to miss him lots when he starts full days next week. 😢 . Nursery, school pickups and lunch done, and the boys are now happily playing together while I get my Monday @the_organised_mum  jobs done before heading out to Hugo’s first Mini Kickers session later. ⠀⠀ Happy new week all 💛 . . .

"You're what we call in the trade, a mid cv-er. You've got a few years behind you so you know how life works, no unrealistic expectations. You also have many years ahead of you to learn, grow and develop even more and that makes you extremely valuable" These are the exact words someone said to me in a work meeting recently and they have transformed how I'm looking at life. I've had a few years away from my career to have my daughter and take some time out which whilst amazing and fortunate has also been hard. I've missed the corporate identity and grey suit I used to be able to hide behind and allowed the self doubt to creep in at times but hearing those kind reasurring words has put my mind at rest and reminded me I am good enough and I have lots to give. I go back to work in a couple of months and instead of allowing myself to worry and fret about everything that could possibly go wrong or that I will have forgotten even my basic times tables I'm going to remember those words, banish the black and grey suits and be a stronger more confident me. I've toyed with writing about this for some time now but I saw a post last night that made me realise most of us have insecurities and no matter how much it looks like we have our shit together, probably, behind the scenes there's some ridiculous beef that we have with ourselves because we're often inwardly critical so because they helped me I thought I would share his words incase they help anyone else too, were all valuable, we need to remember that X @martinealexander  #bekind  #motivation  #womenempowerment  #instainspiration  #selfcare  #bethebestyou  #beafriend  #mummy  #careerbreak  #confidence  #women  #mummyblogger 

Our faculty member Sarah Ellis (@gravity_road  & @amazingif ) who joined us in June, reminded us maternity leave is far from the average 'career break', in fact not much of a break at all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's really important to be kind to yourself. Yes, you may have had time off, and your colleagues may mistake it for a holiday, but is it really restful?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're making the return to work this September, remember you can't conquer this transition all in one go! With gentle 'baby' steps and little wins you'll make small progress every day and be thriving in no time!

Don’t stare at the closed door too long, you’ll miss the window opening. This time last year I had just graduated from my postgrad masters, got my first dietetic job and was paying back college loans. When I drove back to Galway to start my job I had €80 in my bank account and still had to buy petrol 😬 I thought this was it for the foreseeable future. Then I panicked and thought, wait, I haven’t done a gap year, Erasmus, J1, inter-railing, stint in Australia or worked abroad, what am I missing out on!?! At 28 I thought I was too old to do any of this now and should be working and saving to ‘settle down’ 😳. Everyone kept saying it’s now or never so I moved home, started saving and then at the start of this year convinced Brian to quit his job and come travel with me. I don’t plan on having much more than €80 when I come home again this time again but so far it’s been worth it.

Day 46, 🇧🇴 La Paz, Bolivia ¡Bienvenido a Bolivia! The sprawling city of La Paz sits at 3,600m above sea level and stretches up the the El Alto district at 4,095m. The city has the stunning backdrop of the snow capped Mt. Illimani. Since 2012 the city has invested in seven cable car lines connecting the various districts and the airport, and providing the perfect way to capture views of the city’s dramatic setting. A one way ride on the cable car costs just 3 Bolivianos (36p). 🚠 La Paz is my first stop in Bolivia and will be my base for the next few days. #backpacking  #backpacker  #travelling  #trip  #roundtheworld  #travel  #careerbreak  #wanderlust  #exploring  #instatravel  #adventure  #solotravel  #travelgram  #igtravel  #explore  #travelphotography  #gadventures  #southamerica  #bolivia  #lapaz 

I’m currently at my cousin’s home in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada after leaving Green Bay early last week and traveling through three different American cities. Last Monday morning I was back at Lambeau Field - for a media shoot - it was a bit nerve wracking being interviewed and asked questions whilst being filmed, but Rich Ryman who works for the Green Bay Press-Gazette is really experienced and helped put me at ease. I grudgingly woke up at half 4 Tuesday morning for an early flight to Philadelphia via Chicago. After arriving at around lunchtime, I spent the day relaxing with my CouchSurfing host Michel. The following day was a busy sightseeing day taking in many of Philadelphia’s tourist attractions such as the Liberty Bell, Eastern State Penitentiary and Museum of Art, which is also famous for the Rocky steps and statue. Baltimore was the second pre season game for the Packers and it was a short two hour Greyhound coach journey from Philadelphia. Although the Packers struggled against a good team with a strong defense it was a really nice experience, making some new friends - both Ravens and Packers fans. The next morning it was a short bus journey to Washington and another full on sightseeing day taking in museums, memorials and memorable sights such as the Washington Monument, State Capitol building and of course The White House. My flight to Toronto on Saturday lunchtime was from Dulles airport, so I spent Friday night in a small town called Herndon in Virginia - ended up being an eventful evening in a local bar. It’s good to be in Canada - my first visit - and to catch up with family from India. Next week I’m heading to Winnipeg for the Packers third pre season game against the Raiders #greenbay  #greenbayallday  #wiscopride  #packersnation  #greenbaypackersfan  #gopackcgo🏈  #aaron  #travelwisconsin  #greenbaywi  #greenbaypackersnation  #gapyearlife  #greenbaywisconsin  #greenbaypackersfan  #greenbaypackers4life  #greenbayallday  #yearout  #lifewelltraveled  #roamnation  #heisnotlost  #careerbreak  #livetotravel  #livetotraveltraveltolive  #worktotravel  #thewanderer  #sabbaticallife  #packerssuperfanjaz  #teachertravels  #usa❤️  #ilovetotraveltheworld  #wanderlustlifestyle 

Our Madagascar volunteers went on a morning dive to a reef inside one of the permanent no-take zones within the Velondriake Locally Managed Marine Area. This patch reef just outside the barrier reef has been completely closed to fishing since 2010. ⠀ ⠀ It’s always been a firm favourite with volunteers and staff as no two dives there are ever the same. Our volunteers are going to be surveying this reef, collecting data on the abundance of fish and the diversity of the benthic life to help keep track of the positive impacts of this marine management measure 🐠 ⠀ ⠀ Photos: Clara Johnston ⠀ ⠀ #bvmadagascar  #beyondconservation  #blueventures  #andavadoaka  #madagascar  #velondriake  #marinereserve  #notakezone  #marineconservation  #underwaterphotography  #underwater_world  #tropicalfishofinstagram  #marinebiology  #marinebiologist  #fishgeek  #neverstopexploring  #staysalty  #gapyear  #scubadiving  #learntodive  #allaboutadventures  #anotherdayinparadise  #positivechange  #passionpassport  #careerbreak  #sabbatical  #studyabroad  #travelwithapurpose  #volunteer  #joinus

🇵🇱Udało nam się! Wczoraj dotarliśmy do Terakotowej Armii pierwszego chińskiego cesarza Qin Shi. Ponad 8000 figur naturalnej wielkości przedstawiających żołnierzy, oficerów i konie. Robi wrażenie i napewno raz w życiu warto to zobaczyć.Na minus organizacja i tłumy ludzi.... kto byl tam wie o czym mówimy... . 🇬🇧We did it! Yesterday we arrived at the Terracotta Warriors of the first Chinese emperor Qin Shi. Over 8000 life-size figures depicting soldiers, officers and horses. It is impressive and certainly worth seeing once in a lifetime. The downside... organization and crowds of people .... who was there knows what we are talking about ... . #chiny  #china  #xian  #travel  #terracottawarriors  #中国  #西安  #polscypodroznicy  #careerbreak  #backpackers

Should you be working part-time? I was invited to speak on BBC Radio recently in response to a study which found that working up to 22-30 hours per week had a positive impact on participants but that any hours worked in excess of this resulted in a negative impact on cognitive functioning. Why was this? It was discovered that stress and fatigue played a large part in impairing participants’ cognitive functioning. The study concluded that ‘too much work can have adverse effects on cognitive functioning’. This got me thinking about the many clients I work with who are keen to explore ways in which they can slow down, take it easier and reduce stress in their lives. They talk about how their working lives impact massively on their emotional and physical health, relationships and levels of happiness. Working part-time is a common desire yet the challenge is how to achieve part-time work whilst maintaining a degree of economic stability.

Do you experience flow in your life? You know you're in flow when you become totally immersed in activity or task you're doing. Mihaly Czikszentmihayli, the master of flow, says: "The happiest people spend much time in a state of flow - the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter. The experience itself is so enjoyable, that people will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it." #happiness  #careerhappiness  #careeradvice  #careerchange  #careercoach  #careergoals  #careers  #lifegoals  #lovelife  #careergoals  #careermanagement  #careershift  #careerinsights  #careerexploration  #careerchoice  #careerhelp  #careertip  #careertips  #careerdriven  #careering  #careerbreak  #careermoves  #careerfocus  #careercounselling  #careerguidance  #happinessatwork  #loveyourjob  #careertalk  #niagarafalls  #liveyourbestlife  #careerflow
