Stepping Back


Stepping Back


By: Hilary Rodela, Lead Digital Content Writer for Taction USA


In any line of work, it is important to take a step back and remind yourself to breathe. This is especially true in the world of forensics and investigation. It can be very easy to slip on the slope of negativity based on the situations you are exposed to, or to end up feeling consumed over a case. When this happens, it is best to step back, and breathe.


When you remove yourself from the work mode mindset you have the chance to reset. Not that being focused is a bad thing, but it isn’t healthy to be so consumed by the world of investigation, you miss out on other things in life.


Take time to pursue other interests and hobbies you have. Though I love investigation and a good mystery, I also love to cook, hike, and am pursuing a wine expertise certification. I make it a point to ensure I remove myself from work mode, and put that same passion into something else. By taking more time to do other activities, I have found I am much more focused when I do need to work on a case, teach a class, etc.


When you let yourself be yourself outside of work, it makes a huge difference emotionally and mentally. As a result you will sleep better, focus more, and have peace of mind.
