In our business, you really can't often say TGIF (Thank God It's Friday) as it typically means it is the beginning of the weekend also referring to time off.
If you are newer to the industry or if you have been in it for a while and got in a rut or routine, you may need to take a minute to rethink what you thought of a weekend and what it means.
We are fortunate enough to live in a society or culture where not everyone works now 9-5 Monday- Friday. So, it may be a little easier for you to wrap your head around your weekends being a workday.
However, you can get burn out if you don't take time to rest, restore and rejuvenate your energy.
I have to admit, I am preaching to the choir right now. For years, I have tried to take off Sunday and Monday.
Taking time off is a challenge. I love my business and I really want to get to work on Monday and get business done, during the week I have to tend to my tasks, the weekend is full of events, and often on Sunday which should be my day of rest, I am often cleaning up things from the weekend and get a jump on the week ahead.
For years, I've tried to at least make sure that I don't take appointments on Mondays to catch up with my work, but guess what continually happens. You guessed it, I end up taking appointments. I am grateful for the business that keeps us all going, but what do you do when you just can't get a break?
Since I am a "planner", might I suggest, take out your calendar and pick out 4-8 days in the month that you can plan to take off, stay at home, sleep in, go home early, or have a long lunch. It is vital to our survival to keep going, keep up our energy, and continue to have a positive attitude.
If you have an unconventional work schedule, I would love to know your creative way to relax and unwind.
