It’s right in the middle of summer and time for fun in the sun. As you eat some barbeque, visit the beach and spend time outdoors with family and friends, the last thing you want to do is think about work. However, there are three, simple things you can do over the weekend that will help your business:
1. Do Nothing.
Most of you already have this on your list. But if you are a workaholic or a business owner, you probably have a list of work tasks you plan to finish while everyone else is relaxing.
This is fine, and sometimes it’s good to get caught up. But you may want to sit back and do nothing. Not only will you clear your mind by not thinking about work for one or two days, but you’ll be able to rest. Then, when you go back to the office, you’ll be much more refreshed and likely to think of good ideas to improve productivity, sales and more. Take a break already!
2. Think About the Positives.
You’ve worked hard all year and deserve a day off. While you’re sitting in your lounge chair, think of all the things you’ve accomplished this year. What are you most proud of with your business?
There is so much doom and gloom in the world, it’s nice to remember the good things you’ve done and get in a more positive mindset.
3. Reward Yourself.
If you have a crazy schedule, you probably haven’t paid too much attention to the fact that it’s now summer! Get outside and enjoy nature. Have some seasonal fruit. Walk around barefoot. Do something special to remind you that it’s summer time… a time to be outside, eat fun foods and enjoy yourself. Give yourself a little reward for all of the hard work you do.
While it may be hard to hear for many of you, it’s time to have some fun in the sun and relax. By doing so, you’ll be more refreshed and a better entrepreneur. Now, turn off your computer already and take a break!
