Take a Break from the 21st Century!

Do you sometimes find yourself hankering after the simple life? Do you have dreams of a bucolic idyll growing organic vegetables, making your own chutney, patchwork quilts, no rush for the tube or bus, clean air, no bad news and so on and so on…

If you do, you’re not alone. Most people I coach entertain fantasies of stepping off the treadmill for a while, living the simple life. Closer examination usually means you just need a holiday or a proper break from work. Yet increasingly I find people are unwilling, or believe themselves to be unable, of taking a true and proper break from work. Modern technology means we can take it with us, in ways that were impossible just a few years ago.

So, my advice to you is try and take a proper break at least once a year. Be bold and leave the lap top at home and don’t buy a newspaper or listen to the news, (if that thought alone has bought you out in a cold sweat you most definitely need a proper break!).

Everyone benefits by a recharging of the batteries and you will return refreshed and reinvigorated to work at the end of your vacation! Park the technology at home, rediscover the non technological joys of life, enjoy what nature has to offer, (even if it’s rain), and leave the 21st century behind for a wee while!

      Not even for just one day…? It is really hard when you are running your own business, I know, but the potential benefits are enormous! You’ll return refreshed, reinvigorated and probably with heaps of new ideas for the business!
      Thanks for your honest comment, Naomi. If you ever manage it, let us know! Jane 🙂
