Why You Should Kick Up Your Feet

2 replies
It's important to work hard for your business and your dreams. However, it is also important to be able to take a step back and relax some times. It can actually help your business! So, this weekend, I want you to take a breath and enjoy life as it is right now.

I was reading about this on entrepreneur-journey.com and found some great reasons why some relaxation is a must!

* De-stress: Functioning under a constant burden of stress is like trying to fly an airplane with the wheels unlocked and the flaps down. There's MORE 'drag' and greater resistance against which much of your energy is wasted.

* Get Creative: Your best ideas often pop-up when you're most relaxed and in free thinking mode. While working under adverse conditions may provide an adrenaline surge to meet deadlines, it really isn't a great way to spur creativity.

* Evaluate and Assess: Relaxing from time to time lets you spend some time reviewing your performance and seeing how well things are going. Do they need adjustment? Is some part out of balance? Are you doing what needs to be done? Should you delegate stuff? These answers are easier to find while you relax.

* Celebrate: Taking time in your hectic schedule to break away from work and rejoice in what you've accomplished can be a forceful drive to achieve even more. If you can't do this daily, shoot for at least once a week. And if you can't find something big to celebrate, why, revere the small ones!

* Rejuvenate: A short 'vacation' from the hustle and bustle of your typical work-day can help IGNITE the passion and excitement that got you started and fired you up in the early days, when running a business wasn't so much a chore as a joyous adventure. Capture that spirit, in a small way, through relaxing breaks from the routine.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

    Spent the weekend in heaven (aka a Canadian national park).

    Beautiful blue water and endless beaches.

    Caves hidden within cliff faces by the most peaceful lake.

    Beach walking. Trail hiking. Chasing snakes.

    Returned with more inspiration for my business than ever before, and about 58 mosquito bites.

    I spent my weekend watching movies. Best way to relax for me is to stay home. Working too much is bad for your health and so is stress!
