taking time to refresh

By Dana Fox

When you work from home, it is so easy to get stuck in the same routine. Believe me, my entire days consist of doing the same things over and over again. I’ve always got plenty to do, and my list of projects is currently a mile long (I’m currently working on 12 blog designs at once). While it’s great to feel accomplished while working your little butt off, I’ve found it can actually be a bit detrimental to your success.

As the above image reads, “sometimes a break from your routine is the very thing you need.”  It cannot be more true. I’ve always found that taking a break from what I’m doing to focus on something else, or even taking a break to do absolutely nothing at all, is so necessary. I call it my “refresh” mode. If too many things are going on at once, my mind is too crammed to concentrate properly, which in turn results in lousy work. Lousy work isn’t exactly something that I can be proud of.  I need those refresh moments.

I’m currently working on an e-book (that will be available here), among everything else I have going on. This project has been in my mind for quite some time now and it feels so good to finally put my plan into action. While it may seem like I have absolutely no time to even tackle this idea, I do. I separate my projects effectively so that there is always time to work on each one. I suppose writing this e-book IS a part of my “refresh time” since it’s a different type of process. It’s calming in a way, and takes me away from the routine I’m so used to.

If you ever feel overwhelmed, or if your work just isn’t measuring up to your own expectations, I assure you that you probably just need a break. There is ALWAYS time to finish something, and taking as much time as you need to refresh and clear your mind will be so worth it and can only result in good things.

How do you break away from your routine?
