Let's talk about the importance of rest. The ability to take a break, unplug, or play. If you work for someone else, then you take sick leave or vacation time. You also have weekends and holidays off (most often). But if you work for yourself, YOU have to create that rest. YOU have to take that time off for yourself. And this is so important because you need it, your business needs it!
I'm writing to you from one of my favorite places, the mountains. And as I sit here absorbing the quiet of nature and a strong cup of coffee, I can't help but think of all the years I didn't know how to rest. And quite honestly it's something I still struggle with. But I've learned how important rest is and it's something I now make a priority. Today I'm encouraging you to do the same!
Your business will be better if you create time for rest. You'll get more inspiration, have more stamina, and will enjoy a happier balanced life. Maybe you start with planning a big vacation each year. Or a weekend to yourself each month. Maybe you'll unplug on Sundays. Or log off in time for dinner. Whatever it may be, carve out that time for you. Just because you have your own business doesn't mean you can't make time for rest. It's time to make YOU a priority.
