Relaxing Weekend Getaway
As a small business owner you are constantly on the go. You don't have traditional work hours, you're always always on the clock and always working. For some days it seems 24/7, which can really wear you down. As much as you love your craft and you love what you do it can be really really stressful on your mental state as well as your body.
So this past weekend I took the time that I really truly needed to give myself a relaxing weekend, kind of a weekend getaway. Yes, I could do this all at home but sometimes you just need to get away from everything, from all of your distractions and really focus in on things that you want to do. I really wanted to get some business work done and just take some time to myself. I was able to stay at a Hilton hotel which was great. The hotel was wonderful and I ended up going over to TJ Maxx (not sponsored) and got a few things to relax, wind down and just let my body recharge for the week ahead.
I got some bath bombs, a body scrub, a face mask and of course some candy because #treatyourself. It was just so relaxing to be able to sit and soak it all in. You don't really realize how much you need this until you're in it. I didn't realize how much my body really really needed this relaxation time until I was sitting in the bath thinking “Wow. I need this.”
I just want to say to any small business owners, it’s ok to take time for yourself. Heck, you have to take time for yourself because if you don't you're just going to run yourself dry which is going to affect your business, affect your performance and affect how you relate with your clients. You want to be at the top your best game and if you can't then you need to recheck what you're doing. I always believe that taking time for yourself is extremely, extremely important and it can definitely help you in the long run. So having this weekend to just sit and a veg in front of the TV, take a nice relaxing bath and pamper myself a little bit was definitely something I really needed. I challenge you to do something like this as well. I hope this inspires you to take some time for yourself. You don’t have to get away to a hotel but I felt that this is what I really, really needed.
