The week between Christmas and the New Year is a wonderful time to kick back, reflect and relax. Many of us are still in Christmas mode, visiting with family or relishing the holiday feeling.
This is a good time to regain some personal energy and inspiration for the new year.
If 2017 found you busily pursuing your passions, goals and dreams, you’re probably tired, and maybe even feel a little overwhelmed.
Take some downtime to reflect and recharge, and to plan your business and personal strategy for 2018. Here are 3 time-tested tips to help you regain some personal energy and excitement:
Resting is a lost art in our current culture of go-go-go. The constant demands we place on ourselves can fry our internal operating systems. Naps, baths, massages, meditation, or mini-vacations are all easy ways to gain new strength and fresh ideas.
When you are focused intently on achieving a specific goal, it is easy to forget why you’re doing so. Zoom out to remember your values, mission, and how your current actions connect to the bigger picture. What is your end game? Quit looking at the bark, and behold the beauty of the forest.
Then Zoom Back In...
Looking at the big picture too long can also have its downside. It can feel too big, and create confusion around where to start and what to do, and this can lead to overwhelm. So once you are clear on your “why,” zoom back in to focus on ONE simple thing you can do to move in the direction of your goals.
How are you using this time to RECHARGE?
