Why, When + How to Take a Social Media Break

If you’re listening to this podcast in real time, Thanksgiving is a little over 1 week away and to show my gratitude I thought maybe–juuuuust maybe–this episode might be exactly what you might need: why, when and how to take a BREAK.

A few years ago, I made a pact to myself that I would always be improving. And while I regularly practice yoga, have routine visits to a massage therapist, and weekly acupuncture treatments, there’s still one thing I’m improving… healing my mind.

I'm the type of person who over-thinks over-thinking. I lay in bed at night unable to sleep because I'm making lists of things to do (grocery lists, email lists, to-do lists, people-to-hug lists), and finding ways to continue following my dreams.

>>But sometimes thinking gets in the way living and this causes my brain to succumb to stress and lethargy.<<

In light of this, JD and I carve time in our calendars to just be. We share a Google calendar and block out days for resting and catching up…and we also add time for vacations.

We've discovered that every time we return from a vacation, we've got a new idea to execute or a project that'll push us creatively.

The minute we prioritized rejuvenation, the more effective we were throughout the year.

Whether it’s a week on a tropical island or a staycation in our small apartment, these breaks were exactly what my brain needed.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Signs to take a break
  • How often to take a break
  • How to prepare to take a break

As you know, we’re not the Energizer Bunny… we’re not meant to go, go, go without a moment to rest. Hustler, I want to empower you (and maybe challenge you) to show yourself some immense LOVE by giving your body and mind the time to heal and reset.

Enjoy your time off, friend… You deserve it.
