In the past few weeks I have made a concerted effort to take a day off. When you work for yourself it is really hard to say no to a project, or to cut yourself some slack on a deadline. Because my S.O. and I live together, and work together, and travel together, we are always…together. In an apartment less than 600 square feet. When things are stressful it is hard to remember why the heck you fell in love with someone who leaves their shoes (me, lol) all over the apartment. So, we implemented a scheduled day where we celebrate being friends, lovers, and don’t talk about business. It’s a day for dreaming and talking without any of the angst of the week. It has been trans-formative. Not expensive, either. We use Groupon and Yelp for meals, we had free movie tickets, we drove to Naples because I’d never been there. South Florida is gorgeous this time of year and we both love being outside. Now that the holidays are coming, we are taking extra care to enjoy family and friends—because that is what matters most.
Love, baby, love.
What do you do to recharge? Share below–if you feel like it, lol–I am nosy and like to know what other people do to re-set.
Have a great day!
