Lately I’ve been really busy crossing things off the to-do list, but I was starting to get to that point of burn out. I’m sure you know that point well. The point where you’re tired, your cranky, you’ve been wearing the same thing for three days and your hair hasn’t seen a comb in days.
I was totally there, so I decided to take advantage of the three day holiday weekend to do a little mental recharging. I’ve still been working a bit in small chunks, but for the most part just relaxing and having fun with the family. We made some fun dessert dishes to take to the family get together, we did a little bit of shopping, and we rented a bunch of movies.
I’m already feeling a million times better and the weekend isn’t over yet. Tomorrow afternoon we’ve got more relaxing planned and we’re going to see Dark Shadows at the theater.
So this is just a little reminder to you. Take a break, recharge those virtual brain batteries, and chances are in the end you’ll actually get more stuff done faster once you’re running on full-fuel again. And for goodness sake, go comb your hair already 😉
Have a great Memorial Day weekend and take a moment or three to thank someone for their service.
