I’m going to keep this blog post short and to the point. When’s the last time you took some much needed down time? What is that I hear you say? You don’t have time to take a vacation? The kids need you? You don’t have the money?
Really? Let’s be honest with one another. Everyone NEEDS a break every now and again. It’s good for the mind, body, and soul. And no excuse is going to change the fact that everyone NEEDS time to relax and recuperate. It’s even more amazing to see what we discover when we actually take the time to relax and rejuvenate.
So I have decided that I am going to role model how to do this. During the holiday season I did not take any time off other than Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. I’ve been sick twice in the last 60 days, worn out, grumpy, and just plain needing a vacation from the entrepreneur grind. And I’m about to do just that, hence why I decided to post this excerpt early this week.
I’m headed to Puerto Rico for 5 days. We’ll visit family and friends, we’ll drink, we’ll eat, we’ll laugh, we’ll relax. Did I mention we’ll eat? Yes, lots of wonderfully flavored caribbean food that will make me forget all about the last couple of months that I’ve been pushing myself so hard.
I’m going to come back refreshed with a new outlook and set of eyes. I’m going to be ready to charge forward and create new possibilities for HRSS Consulting Group and our team. I’m going to come back relaxed and rejuvenated so that I can keep giving the business my all.
We all need a bit of down time. There’s different ways to take that time, but more than anything, just take it. Our bodies need it, our minds need it, and our souls, maybe more than anything else, need it. Treat yourself to a little getaway. Treat yourself to some fun away from the norm.
Because the last time I checked, a little relaxation and recuperation never hurt anyone.
Until next week…Diviertete y Cuidado!
