Today I had grand plans to catch up on some work but I’ve wanted to chill and recharge my entrepreneurial batteries and not focus on a lot of work. I did do a little work like review my podcast video that is launching tomorrow and prepare for the launch. I did a little baking of blueberry muffins and some oatmeal for the week. Certain items like this blog that I committed to for the month of August are still important and need to get completed.
It’s good to rest and recharge and I probably do it far less than most and far less than I should. My recharging is through exercise, reading, relaxing. I like to stay busy and don’t always slow down as much as I should.
Recommendations for Recharging Your Entrepreneurial Batteries
- Unplug from social media: Many of us are tied to social media all week but it’s good to disconnect on the weekend.
- Be Creative: Journal, draw, or take photos or whatever works for you. Creativity is associated with the right side of the brain and many entrepreneurs are more analytical and logical, which is associated with the left side of the brain.
- Take a road trip: Whether you take a drive for the day or you take the weekend away, a road trip is a great way to change your scenery, get away, relax and recharge.
- Meditate/Yoga/Visualization: Whether you choose one or all three, these are a great way to quiet your mind and relax. I’m personally more into visualization but meditation and yoga are also great practices.
- Spend time with a spouse, loved one or friend: Disconnecting from work and spending time with your spouse, a loved one or friend is a great way to recharge. Quality time is often harder during the week but on the weekend there is no excuse.
Taking the time to recharge my entrepreneurial batteries doesn’t always happen as much as it should but sometimes you must give yourself some grace and recognize that resting and recharging is just as important as getting more work done. In the end, I get more work done when I recharge my entrepreneurial batteries.
