Spring is just around the corner and in the next blink of an eye it will be summer. Summer cottages and apartments invite you to relax in the natural beauty and admire the beautiful lake scenery.
Sometimes it can be hard to take your mind off work and running a business, despite the holidays. You can be physically at the summer cottage, warming up the sauna and grilling delicious food, or on a beach holiday in the Canary Islands, and yet your mind still wanders to unfinished projects or post-holiday tasks.
If you are an entrepreneur, does this sound familiar? It’s no wonder if it does, because according to the 2014 Wellbeing Barometer, self-employed people take half as much holiday on average.
The question is: how to avoid excessive stress and instead ensure maximum relaxation during your holiday?
Before your holiday starts, do this:
- Make a schedule and try to stick to it. As cliché as it may sound, well planned is half done! Do all the most important and difficult tasks first and stick to your deadlines.
- The closer you get to the holidays, the fewer projects you take on. Do this only if it’s possible. It’s not a good idea to let tasks pile up and leave a lot to catch up on after the holiday. And isn’t it just that the best feeling when leaving on holiday is when you leave yourself a literal or figurative blank slate waiting to get back to work!
- Leave the easiest and lightest tasks for last before the holiday. There’s nothing better than going on holiday from your last shift with a relaxed mind. However, if it’s the most challenging tasks that fall into the final rhythm, keep the reward you deserve – a holiday – clear in your mind.
By following these tips, you can enjoy yourself to the full and relax when your holiday finally arrives!
