As a Virtual Assistant, I always talk about taking time for yourself and your family. Part of the reason you should delegate to a VA is to have that time. Taking care of yourself and spending time with family is crucial to success in life and business. Your business will be more productive while your family is happy to be with you. You become less stressed and more focused on the important things.
Today, I made time for myself and my daughter. There is a new nail salon five minutes from our house. My daughter has been eager to try it. After her homework was finished, we jumped in the car and drove to this new salon. I was able to enjoy mother-daughter time and take care of myself with a relaxing “Diva’s Manicure.” We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I was able to relax and unwind before heading home to finish my day.
Taking time out for yourself and your family should be done as often as possible. Schedule self-care and family time on your calendar regularly. It does not always have to be at the same time like we did today. Taking “me” time is essential, too.
My next outing will definitely be something I enjoy on my own. “Me” time outside the house is something I try to do once or twice a month. The rest of the time, I do “me” time at home watching my favorite movie, reading a good book, or meditating for 10 to 15 minutes. It can be anything you find enjoyable and relaxing that you can do on your own.
If you need more time to take care of yourself and to be with your family, hire a Virtual Assistant to handle the business while you are away. Your Virtual Assistant can take care of the daily tasks while you take care of you and your family. When you are happy, healthy and relaxed, your life and business will be better than ever.
