Have you ever felt like you’re constantly caught up in the hustle and bustle of your business? 

It’s not uncommon to get stuck in the busy trap.

After all, you’re the leader in your business and not only your clients, but your team want a piece of you.

Sometimes there’s just not enough to go around, and still have time left over for you.

But here’s the thing: you need to break free from the hustle culture and prioritise your well-being. 

It’s not just about what you’re doing; it’s about who you’re being.

What do I mean by that?

Well, a couple of months back, I had a wake-up call that made me realise the significance of stepping back. 

Although not physically burnt out, I was mentally burnt out. 

It had been years since my last proper holiday, and I hadn’t given myself the time and space I needed to reset. 

I discovered that burnout isn’t just physical; it can manifest mentally and emotionally too.

It took stepping away and having a break to truly understand the toll it had taken on me.

If you’re anything like me, taking time off can feel guilt-inducing or impractical. 

You may believe that you should always be in the business to keep it growing or that you can’t afford to go on a holiday (financially and time wise). 

But it’s important to challenge those beliefs. 

Taking breaks and creating space for yourself is crucial to your well-being and the success of your business.

When you step back, you give yourself the opportunity to fall back in love with your business. 

It renews your excitement, sparks creativity, and helps you see the bigger picture. 

Stepping back also provides clarity. 

It allows you to evaluate your progress, reassess your goals, and make necessary adjustments. 

Plus, when you’re rested and rejuvenated, you bring your best self to the table and the flow on effect of that is an increase in productivity and overall performance.

To truly embrace the power of stepping back, it requires both a shift in mindset and practical planning. 

Start by examining your beliefs around taking time off. 

Are they holding you back or propelling you forward?

Challenge any negative or restrictive thoughts and replace them with empowering beliefs.

Next, take action by scheduling breaks and retreats in your calendar. 

Whether it’s a holiday, a weekend getaway, or a solo retreat, make it a non-negotiable. 

Consider finding a biz bestie or accountability partner to share this journey with, or even treat yourself to a retreat in a new and inspiring environment.

Remember, if you want further guidance and support in your journey to break free from the hustle and achieve clarity in your business, reach out and book a clarity call.
