It has been such a busy time around here between sending the kids back to school, adding all of our new products last week, and everything else that comes up day to day. Sometimes I wonder how we keep up with everything. But actually, our secret is to not fight to keep up with it all but to take lots of breaks, enjoy ourselves, and then work later.
The other day we did just that. We dropped all of the work that was stressing us out, dropped one child off at school and then headed up to a favorite hiking trail of ours. We spotted squirrels, birds, and managed to wear out our puppy.
This little break was exactly what we needed. When we got back to the office Sienna happily played by herself, we were both rejuvenated to get some work done, and the dog took a long nap.
Don't forget to take plenty of breaks. The time for yourself and maybe some time to connect with nature may really help you relax and refocus. It works for us.
