5. Mental health rest

I am writing this to inform you that due to lots of work in the office, I had a very hectic routine during the last month, I couldn’t take rest even on weekends. That’s why due to restlessness and stress I could not come to the office for a couple of days (July 10 – July 13, 20XX). My doctor advised me to take a rest from the office work. I hope you will consider my problem. I make sure that I will complete the missing work as soon as possible.
