I bet this is a loaded question for many of you? You feel like you can’t shut down, too much you have to get done, quotas to meet, events to attend. So many demands on us, I know.
But when I was selling time share one of the key points I would focus on with the couple or family I was touring, rest and relaxation is what rejuvenates us to do better than if we never let up.
Did you know that in Europe it is mandatory that people take 6 weeks vacation. Why? Because they KNOW the difference it makes in the productivity of their work force. People in the US are afraid of negative actions if their boss sees them putting in for vacation. Afraid it would look like they don’t want to work.
Statistics prove, however, that employers appreciate their employees that understand the importance of shutting down and relaxing. Those employers ‘get it’.
Think about it. How do you feel when you take a long deep breath or drink that fresh cup of coffee and shut down for just a few minutes. Doesn’t that give you an extra surge to begin again? Even in a tiny dose?
So then why not do it at least every weekend? Or if you can only do it one day a week because of obligations, are you actually giving yourself that day to rejuvenate?
I am passion about this subject because I’ve watched what happens to stressed out, overworked, burnt out people. Stress is a killer, but so many people end up feeding on the adrenaline of achievement. So I get such a kick out of seeing what a chillin’ out weekend does for them!
I believe, you must make rejuvenating a priority in your life – you only have one life to enjoy. Give yourself that time to have that joy.
