Do You Remember How to Relax?


It is amazing how business owners often forget they need a bit of downtime to recharge and relax. The one thing about working for someone else is at the end of the day you just forget about your job and go home. A business owner never has that luxury since our businesses are constantly on our mind. In fact money, sales, bills, customers, inventory etc are always on our minds no matter where we are or what we are doing. We certainly aren’t complaining since we choose to be a business owner but we are still human and need a bit of downtime. The times when you step back and relax you will come back to work stronger and with a new outlook which can be a very good thing.

Some of us are able to get away for a vacation but for others that isn’t always possible but that doesn’t mean we can’t find some downtime. It does take a lot of discipline and focus to be a business owner but that is also needed to make time for a break.

I took this picture of  some pelicans out on the water one morning when I was out walking on the beach. Spending a week at Daytona Beach is very relaxing but of course then it’s time to head home. This picture is not the same as being there but for weeks when I need a break looking at pictures like this can take me back to that relaxing week on the beach and seems to have a calming effect when I have a very hectic business day.

This is a good time to take a look at your schedule and fit in some time to relax and see what works for you on those absolutely crazy busy business days. I know you will be glad you did.
