I never understood why "being so busy at work" takes precedence over self-care (ahem, time off). .
If you're employed by someone else (self-employed folks, I'll get to you below), your employer PAYS YOU to take time off. So please, take it. All of it.
You don’t have to take elaborate vacations across the world. Long weekends and staycations work too. The point is to leave the office and completely unplug. Spend time with your loved ones, work on your side business, go places you've always wanted to go but haven't.
And for heaven's sake, please don't work on your vacation. 😏The office will do just fine without you (sorry, but it's true). Transition your work to someone else and GTFO. 🏃🏼♀️ .
For those of us that are self-employed, it's a little more tricky. Vacation may look different. We don't get paid to take time off, and when we do, we often feel guilty because our business success depends on us.
As you plan your year, figure in specific slots of time where you will completely unplug. Then plan around these times so your business continues moving forward. Also figure vacation time into your finances so you plan accordingly for not getting paid.
You can always make more money, but not more time. So take your vacation, ok? 🙏🏼 You'll return refreshed and ready to put in 100% again. And, maybe you'll return with clarity on what you want for your life.
On that note, I'm headed to Mexico City 💃🏼 for a few days. What will you be doing on your next vacation?
Hey @mtv welcome to my CRV!...Two years ago I left my home in SD to live in this baby for 7 months. I traveled all over the state and beyond. Met the most incredible humans I’ve ever encountered, trimmed with incredibly inspiring women and had the time of my damn life. Get out there, travel alone and experience your magic, beautiful humans.✨🧚🏽♀️🦋🌈 Photo cred to the one and only @jonnyhoolko #carcamping#microhome#roadtrip#california#pacificocean#womenwhotravelsolo#crvgang
