That's right! I'm going on a girls trip for the first time in my life! Packing my bags and heading North with my two besties for a few days of relaxation, exploring, and sunshine. This means that I'll be taking the next week off from blogging, to really allow myself to switch off.
Not so long ago I would power through the year, only resting up in December, but often working between Christmas and New Year. I would push through and felt the guilt that 'I should be working'. I'm sure this is common among small business owners, because unfortunately if I wasn't working, I wasn't making money. Some time later, I've realised just how important it is to go away, switch off and recharge, ready to come back inspired and motivated. My best work often comes post holiday, and I always find that when I arrive home, I'm really ready to dive in!
If you're craving a good read while I'm away, follow these links to read some of my favourite posts from the past 7 months (Wow! Time is flying!)
I'll still be hanging out on Instagram, so you can catch me there too!
You might also like to take this as a cue to book a holiday for yourself! It might be a camping trip to welcome in Spring, or that oversea's holiday you've been saving for. It really doesn't matter what you do, or where you go, as long as you get to stop, unwind and recharge your batteries!
