I was on my mini sabbatical week off last week.
What the heck is a “mini sabbatical”?
I take every 7th week off to rest and recharge. 6 weeks on, 1 week off, then repeat. (I still take the weekends off in the meantime, or the weekend equivalent 😬)
It’s on my Google calendar perpetually, so I don’t even have to think about it.
Brilliant, right? The idea is not mine. It’s seanwes.
(BTW, he’s writing a book about it. Totally check it out if you want to learn the hows/whats!)
I’ve been practicing it since October 2015, and I’m pretty certain I would’ve been burnt out in my biz a long time ago if I hadn’t been taking the regular time off.
During my mini sabbaticals, I still engage in my biz to keep it going, like replying to my customer emails and fullfilling orders.
But other than that, I try to keep my calendar open and do what I feel like doing.
Last week, I had a few obligations that took me out of sabbatical mode, but I still got to do things just for fun.
Here are some highlights 👇🏼
Self-care is super important, my friend.
And NOT selfish.
Hope you’re doing something to recharge your energy as often as you need!
