Now, everyone knows that vacation and travel breaks are so essential to our well-being and experiences of entrepreneurial success. Countless studies now give evidence of how taking a break from our daily grind helps to restore balance physically and mentally. Taking time off for relaxation and fun can actually heal our bodies as we eliminate known stress. But, there’s another part of the vacation break story we often overlook. Your 355 days of grinding behaviors will not stop for your 10-day time off –unless you take what I call a spiritual rest before packing and getting on that plane.
Many years ago I learned how the relentless grind had hold of me when I missed my plane to Mexico, turning my 5-day escape into only 4. Also, it took me 3 of those 4 days to finally allow myself to fully relax, and then it was time to go home. To unwind from the grind before vacation I now practice spiritualrest, my conscious method for unplugging my mind from everything and everybody so I can be more able to relax and play from day one.
So here’s how it goes:
Practicing spiritual rest will not only ensure relaxation during vacation, it will also benefit your business success because it boosts your creativity, improves productivity, and enhances decision-making.
