More than 30% of business owners don’t take holidays. Many say it is never a good time to leave the business and take a holiday. The Easter long weekend is probably the closest you will get to it being a good time (unless you are in the hospitality industry). A lot of businesses will close, or at least slow down over these four days. You don’t have to go away, but use the time to slow down, go for walks, get a massage, sleep in and catch up on the enjoyable, relaxing things you normally don’t have time for.
After all, you are your business’s most valuable asset and generally work long hours, so looking after yourself makes good business sense. So take the time now to get your body and mind back into peak condition. Spending time with friends and family is also a healthy way to rebalance.
Ok, now time for me to take on some of my own advice.
