We all know that if you work 12-hour days for a period of time, you are going to get burned out. It doesn’t matter if you love what you are doing you need to take breaks and rejuvenate yourself.
Though hard work and success are relational, hard working women should always have a goal to achieve and they should also have a way to play as hard as they work.
Below are my top three tips that I recommend for high-achieving women who work hard but don’t play hard:
1. Don’t work longer than a few hours without taking a break. Plan on taking several small breaks throughout your day. It will make you more efficient and cause you to accomplish more.
2. Every week you should do something that is out of the ordinary. It doesn’t have to be expensive; it could be as simple as going to the park and having a picnic with your family. What’s important is that you just do something that will take your mind away from work and reduce your stress level.
3. Create a work environment that you enjoy being in. Small things like having plants in your workspace, putting up motivational posters, and having a window to look out of can do wonders for you. If your work environment is dark and boring you’ll be forcing yourself to work everyday – force yourself should not be an option when you work long hours.
When you adopt the philosophy of ‘when you work hard then you must play hard’ you will see your business grow, your personal life soar and your overall well being reach its peak.
Playing hard when you work hard is one of the keys for long-term success and growth for women entrepreneurs in business.
