Do you know when it’s time to take a break?
And when you know, do you actually take it or do you try to push it out?
Are you afraid that if you take a break you will fall behind? That you’ll miss out?
There’s an ever-increasing pressure on business owners and entrepreneurs to be working harder because if you don’t you’ll not “win the game”.
There is no denying that from time to time you will need to push yourself hard to get things done, but if you don’t look after yourself, your business (and everything else) falls with you.
Your business is a direct reflection of you.
If you’re feeling good and at the top of your game, your business will be too.
But everything needs some love and time to mend.
Like your mobile phone. Every once in a while it needs updating to fix bugs and make it more stable. It comes back stronger and better.
We are like that phone. We need to switch off and update and mend ourselves. So we can come back to our work stronger and better.
The external is not your priority, your inner self is your biggest priority.
A mental health break is not just a holiday, it’s a break with intention. To feed yourself some love and appreciation. To think about specific activities that allow you to do that.
You’ll know when it’s time. So take the time and don’t feel guilty about it.
You know it’s the right thing to do.
Self-love takes self-discipline.
