The harder I work, the more I recognize the importance of relaxing and feeding my soul. It's taken me almost all year to figure out what that means to me (fun time always used to be time spent building my business or working on theatre projects, but now that's my full-time gig I've had to find something else to create variety) but I think I'm starting to get the hang of relaxing again after years of being on the go non-stop.
So my 2017 New Year's Resolution, as it were, is to take time on a weekly basis for one completely non-work-related, non-household-chore-related joyful activity and to book at least two full days off in a row every quarter as a “holiday” to keep my soul batteries recharged and full of enthusiasm and energy. What are you going to do to look after yourself this year?
