No matter what your profession is, work can sometimes be stressful, and for some stress is a part of their everyday work life, which results in breakdowns and an extensional crisis on a daily basis. There’s nothing more important than a work life balance and finding time for yourself to just forget those work worries and unwind. Even though London is a city buzzing with people there are a lot of spots to escape that work and city craziness, and just take time for yourself. Sometimes all you really need is a good book and latte and all that stress melts away.
