I’ll probably get some flack for this, as I have in the past, but I really don’t care, because I’ll stand behind this rule forever.
Take A Break
The worst thing that can happen to you is Burnout and believe me when I say, that shyt sucks!
I generally work every night from 8 to 10, but keep in mind that I have 2 little kids. One is 1, and the other is 4.
This get’s pretty exhausting. My youngest doesn’t sleep very well, so there are some nights where I am just way too tired to do anything!
Here’s what I do…
I try to think of anything that needs to get done that I can get done pretty quickly. On Monday it was to create a FaceBook group. So that’s what I did. It took me a few minutes to get the graphic in and set up, but that was it.
I went to sleep right after that, I was totally shot.
And THAT’S PERFECTLY OK!
It get’s really annoying to constantly hear, “Keep going, don’t stop, you need to work work work, someone else is going to beat you” OMG Please SHUT UP!
We’re freakin’ human, right? Sometimes, we need a damn break!

So the next time you’re feeling rushed, or a lot of pressure to get something done, just take some time for yourself to enjoy the moment.
Sit back, grab a cup of coffee, maybe go for a walk and get some fresh air. If it’s too cold (Like where I live) watch a funny tv show and just enjoy some time for yourself. Then when it permits, go back and do something.
Trust me, it’s totally worth it! When you feel refreshed, your brain will work so much better and things will just pop in! 🙂
Make sure to join the FaceBook Group Zero To 30k, then you can vent your heart out 🙂 It’s definitely a healthy practice and a no judgment zone.
