Relax, Recharge and Release

I’m back at Wifey’s House after a wonderful weekend at the beach. Husband had a fabulous fortieth birthday and we both got a much needed break from our daily grind. It’s so important to take some time for yourself, to change your scenery and to recharge in order to stay productive. Whether you’re a CEO of a major corporation or CEO of your house, everyone is susceptible to burning out and everyone needs a break.

When is the last time you got away? I know the economy is kicking everyone’s ass right now and that financially things might be challenging. I also realize everyone does not have easy access to childcare, BUT it’s still imperative that we find a way to make it happen. If a vacation isn’t in the cards right now, a one day, one person retreat just might be the answer. Break your regular routine and spend the day doing whatever you love to do – the spa, playing tennis, reading books, sipping lattes at Starbucks – getting away doesn’t have to be expensive but it does have to happen.

Truth be told I was a little anxious about skipping town. Missing workdays and blowing my budget always makes me a little uneasy, but wow… it was worth it. How about you? When’s the last time you’ve played hooky? How do you relax, recharge and release? Overworked minds want to know…

Winks & Smiles,

It's so important to take that time!

Skeeter, riding a motorcycle seems so peaceful ... if only I wasn't so scared - smiles!
