As a most of us run our own small businesses, it can be really hard to take proper time off.
I was strict with myself and made sure I had a ten day break over Christmas, which somehow ended today, on a Sunday, with client work to do. But it's quite nice to get my head back in the game.
I didn't do anything except reply to two urgent emails and post on LinkedIn over the Christmas break (the place I get most of my new leads).
Have you found it hard to step away from the emails and messages? Did you have to keep a hand in to keep up to date with some basic tasks?
It's important to be able to get away from it all at times, I'm raring to go now and I was definitely feeling very rundown after a busy December.
A belated Merry Christmas to everyone and a Happy New Year. I hope everyone had a good rest, even if you don't celebrate.
