Work takes up most of our hours during the week. And for entrepreneurs, it can take up a lot more than the 9-5, especially if you are setting up something while holding down a job at the same time. Whichever situation you are in, it has its unique challenges.
By the time we finish, and battle through the commute, we are likely to be very tired, and not able to do much other than collapse in front of the TV. And weekends are often taken up with life admin, like paying bills, grocery shopping, cleaning, more so if you have a family. Burnout can creep up on us before we know it, with all the demands we are juggling, and we can forget to have interests and lose touch with ourselves.
When was the last time you took the time to do something for yourself, that doesn’t have anything to do with the bottom line? Sometimes, we can be afraid to let ourselves have fun because of some irrational fear that if we do, we will fall behind. But in actual fact, it’s the opposite! If you give yourself a break on a regular basis, and disconnect from work and the things that have to be done, you will come back to those things refreshed, with renewed energy, and better focus, making the quality of your work better - but most importantly, improving the quality of your life!
