Is It Time To Take A Day Off???


Have you ever thought – “I just want a day off? I want to do nothing!” I think we have all had these feelings from time to time. Maybe it’s a good thing to give in and take some time for you.

I seem to be juggling a lot of projects lately and loving every one of them but my body and brain are saying “Time Out”. Even though I’m working each day (new book coming shortly!), I’ve made a point each day to take some time to do just nothing but watch some favorite TV shows.

So I know that sounds ultra lazy but allowing myself to take time to switch gears from being “On” to “Off” has helped my productivity, my creativity and allowed me to think about my projects in a different light, making them a bit more manageable.

When I started feeling a little stressed, my husband told me a story about Richard Branson. Mr. Branson says that when he has days that just don’t seem to be productive or he is stuck in a project that seems to be blocked, he takes a few days off to do absolutely nothing. Now Mr. Branson has the luxury of time and money to do that but anyone can do this to a certain degree. Maybe not taking a few days to be off the grid but a few hours each day.

If you are a little overwhelmed by projects, work, family, kids – well, let’s just say life – maybe a few minutes, a few hours or if you can, a day off, might be the cure to help you handle everything that is going on around you. Take time for a little self-care.

Big Hugs!
