Ah, my friends, here we find ourselves again! Another week into our 2019 indie-adventures! This week I’m bringing you a short post — why? Well, because I’m taking today off. WHA?! I know, right? But sometimes, I have to force myself to do it for my own well-being, and today is one of those days.
BUT! That doesn’t mean I can’t spend a few minutes with my friends. So, without further ado…
This Past Week
Today I want to (since I’m keeping this brief anyway 😉) invite you to look at your own work habits and examine whether maybe you need to take a rest day.
Because so often authors – especially when it isn’t your “day job” – fit in writing into any spare moment we can find. This can be compounded if you are a solo-preneur. And while we love what we do and it doesn’t feel like work most of the time because of that — we still, for our own well-being need to cut ourselves a little slack and give ourselves permission to… you know… actually take a day off.
Now – I don’t expect anyone to just take my word for it – hear it from the experts what burnout can do to you (spoiler alert: It can kill your creativity!)
So — it’s an official invitation. Take a day off and drop a comment below and let me know what you enjoy doing on your self-care / “do nothing” days!
