So I was scheduled to have a mandatory surgery on my shoulder and although I am in the bed quite comfortable; I must admit I can do anything but think about WORK!
As a Business Owner, because you are down or sick or on a vacation, the show must STILL go on…. I was wise this time and worked ahead. Taking care of Payroll, organizing a new playground to be built, strategically planning and printing resumes for my Leadership Team just to name a few.
My mom duties included washing clothes ahead of time, shopping for a Daddy- Daughter Dance & preparing for my son to leave on a class trip for the week.
Life still goes on….. as I’m laying here, thinking about the next idea, I have come to the realization that I need to TURN MY BRAIN OFF! I must tell myself that it’s ok to LAY THERE and not worry about a thing. Constantly reminding myself that there’s no need to sweep the floor, prepare dinner or respond to emails from Gorgeous Followers.
As Business Owners and Career Women, we need to find time to take a BREAK!!! Yes, a break. Stop Thinking. Stop Focusing. Stop Grinding for just a FEW DAYS!
Here are a few tips I have prepared for you in helping you to CHILL and STOP WORKING for a little bit.
1️⃣Allow your Family to help you the best way they know how. (Shout-Out to my Mother-In-Law)
2️⃣Realize that whatever is not done, can wait.
3️⃣Do not trick yourself into believing that if you’re not working, your lazy.
4️⃣Use this time to Relax, Pray and Read Your Bible!
5️⃣Take a nice hot bath and REFLECT
You have to remember that our families can not go on without us; therefore, we must be in tip top shape and that means allowing yourself time REGROUP!
I know you are thinking; well Rachel, you’re working now…. No, Blogging is not Work for me, is it quite therapeutic; however, after this… I will drink some tea, eat macaroons and watch all my favorite movies beginning with Soul Food!
