Having seen the benefits of giving Richie McCaw a break before the 2013 World Cup, the New Zealand Rugby Union is open to All Black Captain Kieran Rea taking a sabbatical before playing in the 2019 tournament. It is believed that the time off will enable him to play and skipper better, and many people who have taken sabbaticals report that they feel fresh and ready to tackle new challenges when they return.

Sabbaticals come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and yours doesn’t need to look like anyone else’s. Several celebrities have taken sabbaticals for different reasons, and all report feeling better for it. You can choose to do all kinds of things while you’re taking time off, from doing some DIY, catching up on your reading or even enjoying recreational activities like playing your favourite online casino games.
