Yes, you do need to recharge and refresh. But don’t lose the focus and determination to see this project through to the end. Plan ahead of time for brief periods of relaxation.
A good rule of thumb? If you’re short on funds, don’t think that you “deserve,” or “need” to spend money in order to take a break. If you’re short on time, don’t think you need to shut down your project, or disconnect completely for a significant period of time.
Think about what will really be recharging for you, then do it. This way you can really enjoy your break because you have prepared and budgeted for it ahead of time. And you’ll be ready to pick right up where you left off when you come back from vacation.
Make your break appointments now for the coming holiday seasons. Take one day off a week before each holiday.
Something to look forward to…
