As a lovely birthday treat Laura Morris (www.rentabuggy.co.uk) and I went on a spa day. We did work a bit but it didn’t feel like work as we were sat in a jacuzzi! but world domination must take place in random spots for a busy mumpreneur.
To begin our ‘relaxing’ day I had a fancy Clarins Facial. Now everything about this should have been awesome. Relaxing music, gorgeous smelling candles, low lighting, laying on a super soft massage couch and an expert giving me a facial. I had one issue … even after 25 minutes in someone forgot to tell my brain to STOP! The more I found myself thinking about WORK, the more annoyed I seemed to get and then the less likely it was that I was going to relax anyway.
I know it is a very important aspect of my working time management to schedule in ‘relaxation’ or ‘me time’ but with 2 small children and 2 businesses, a home and partner, this isn’t always easier so imagine my sheer frustration that when I actually get a whole day in I failed to RELAX!
So here’s where I open the floor to you? How do you relax? How do you make sure your brain switches off long enough for you to ‘chill’?
