When is the last time you took a vacation? (A true vacation? One where you unplugged and didn’t do any work?)
As business owners, we are so invested in the day-to-day of our companies, that we forget how important it is to take time off and unplug. Here’s why this is so important.
1. Promote your work/life balance
Chances are, if you’re an entrepreneur, you chose this lifestyle so that you could have a better work/life balance. You probably want to do what you love, and have the freedom and ability to spend time with your loved ones and do what you want?
But are you really doing what you want? Are you taking your time off to really center in and do all the things that you love (outside of your job)?
2. Get creative
By unplugging and taking time outside of the office, you’ll be able to reenergize and recharge, which will engage your creativity.
That way, when you get back to work, you’ll be filled with more ideas than ever before!
3. Stay healthy
Similarly, there is plenty of research out there around the health benefits of vacationing. By taking a break to recharge, you’ll be able to keep your stress levels lowers and (bonus!) reengage with some healthy habits while you’re off.
4. Be a good leader
If you have employees, chances are you don’t want them burning themselves out thinking about work 24/7. (And you shouldn’t be doing that to yourself either!)
By taking time off to vacation, you’re setting a good example as a leader to show that we all need to take some time for ourselves and quality time with our loved ones.
So get to planning! If you don’t have a vacation planned, start dreaming and planning. (Looking forward to a dream vacation is a great way to stay motivated.)
