How are you taking care of yourself?
Our jobs can be very rewarding and challenging at the same time. We love going to work and creating magic with our clients. We use our special talents to turn clients into raving fans.
We spend countless hours going over the latest trends in the beauty industry. We search social media, update our websites, and add photos of the amazing work we do to impress our current clients and attract future clients as well.
This can take quite a bit of time from our already busy schedules. However, we need a feasible way to keep ourselves in balance. Work-life balance is so important for us to function as business people, caretakers, partners and contributors to our communities.
So, with that being said, we really need time to ourselves to recharge our batteries, and to fill up our energy coffers. Our world is busy, fun, challenging and rewarding. If we are drained of energy, it can inhibit our creativity and diminish the zest for our chosen career.
With that being said, what are some ways that we can invest in our mental wellbeing?
If you decompress best through physical movement, a hike in nature, a heavy workout at the gym, or a yoga session may be the best way for you to hit your internal reset button.
If sweat doesn't do it for you, a good book or comedic movie can also help you experience mental release.
One of my favorite ways to unwind and recharge is a long hike in the mountains, with a huge breakfast after the hike. I try and get my hike in every Sunday. I like to end my week this way. It lets me connect with nature, burn off some steam and get my head in a great place to start fresh the next week.
Pull out your calendar and schedule some time for you to mentally recharge. Your mind and body will thank you for it!
