Time To Switch Gears. How About You? (+ Tips to Disconnect)

Jun 30, 2023

Time for me to switch gears and have some summer fun, relaxation and downtime away from work and the regular routine.

As you head into this long weekend or your summer vacation, give yourself permission to switch gears too.

Do whatever your heart desires.

Take a break.

Get outside.

Rest and relax.

Watch an extra movie or two.

Let the kids have more free time to do what their heart desires.

Leave the house cleaning and errands for now.

Go for a paddle board or whatever gives you joy.

Put your phone away and be present.

Wait until you're back at work to worry about email or the task you didn't get to.

Say ‘yes’ to doing something fun.

Say ‘no’ to doing the thing you don’t want to do.

Let go of the guilt for what you didn't do.

Pat yourself on the back for what you did do.

Stop expecting everything to go smoothly and go with the flow.

Be an example for others by making your personal time a priority.

Enjoy your view.

I'm disconnecting for a few weeks and then will be back with new perspective, ideas and inspiration to be more balanced, stress less and your best self.

I’ll leave you with an article with 8 Ways To Disconnect and Enjoy a Real Break.

Thank you for reading my blogs and being here. I know your time is valuable and I appreciate that you share it with me.

Have a wonderful July long!


All my best,
