From a business owners perspective rest, renewal, and recreation are three vital goals of taking a vacation.
With rest you’re simply taking time to give your body some of the much needed rest it’s been craving as you’ve become progressively more burned out.
With renewal you begin to renew your energy physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually dependent on what you need most in the moment. This is key in letting go of the stress and overwhelm that’s dominated your days.
With recreation it’s all about finding joy and having fun in ways you haven’t allowed yourself to in far too long.
Remember life is meant to be embraced, enjoyed, and fully lived. Now’s the time!
Why rest, renewal, and recreation?
Take some time off and follow through on each of these and you’ll come back feeling refreshed, focused, and motivated to get back at it. Productivity will soar but just be sure not to fall right back into the same old patterns and habits that led to your stress, overwhelm and burnout in the first place.
I’m currently away on vacation in Thailand doing all three of these. Keep an eye out for my upcoming posts as I share some of my experiences on each.
If you know you sorely need rest, renewal, and recreation but feel too overwhelmed to stop and take a vacation then my upcoming Mastermind Group, 4 Months To Freedom, might be the perfect solution. Check it out!
