Take a freakin break!!!

Howdy y’all! I am super re-invigorated to work on my business projects so I’m gonna keep this short and sweet. Basically, all day today I was sludging through work at my desk at home, and feeling like nothing really was getting accomplished. I know this isn’t true, because I did check some stuff off my list, but sometimes it just feels that way… do you know that feeling?

It took me all day to realize that trying to push through my to-do list, “figure it all out”, and BE PRODUCTIVE wasn’t working. So I grabbed my notebook and strolled down to my favorite coffee shop. I felt so naughty, walking away from work like that! My coffee shop has this gorgeous back patio that has long-been my own personal work oasis. Big tropical plants, beautiful sparkly white (year-round) christmas lights, yummy lattes, and the magic of internet connectivity.

It’s not hard to imagine that a place like this provides an instant breath of fresh air. It only took me one cup of joe and 30 minutes of journaling to feel re-inspired, re-connected to the bigger purpose of what I’m doing, and HELLA motivated to get some effin’ work done, baby!

Of course, I had to share this hard-earned lesson with you. So in short, don’t waste away the hours pushing through your to-do list, trying to be a good worker when your brain and energy just are NOT up to the task. Instead, think of something fun that you can do to take a break, get out of the house, and go do it! You will feel much more energized and rarin’ to go.
