The StartupNation Blog Trends, tips and real-life anecdotes from industry experts

Give yourself a break!

 

While the world focuses on economic news, it can be easy to turn inward and worry about your career and paying bills. You are probably working more hours and dealing with more stress each day.

I know I was starting to feel major burnout too, and I finally decided to spend the weekend scuba diving.

Article is continued below

At first, it was difficult to break away from my PDA and get all of the
different work projects out of my head. But then, as I started to look at the
big, blue ocean and all the beauty around me, I remembered that there is more to life than work, bills, economic news, and reaching goals.

I finally took a deep breath. It just took a few minutes with nature for me
to calm down and realize the truly, important things in life.

And wouldn’t you know it? When I returned home, there was a feature story
about my client (that mentions StartupNation) in The Detroit Free Press,
http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009901110380, that I’d been working on for a long time. In addition, there were two e-mails requesting my copywriting and PR services.

Now it’s Monday morning, and I’m energized about my week and ready to go. It just goes to show you that if you take a break from work and all of your stressors, you’ll be able to recharge and refocus.

Now, you may not have new sales waiting for you when you return, but you’ll have a fresh attitude that can lead your life in a new, positive direction.

Do you have some good ideas to help other entrepreneurs get through current, economic times? If so, please share your thoughts below. And if you need some free help with your copywriting and PR efforts, please let me know here or at www.rembrandtwrites.com. Thanks!
