On this Greener Grass Media blog, you are used to reading ideas to improve your business strategy. One of the best tips I can give you is to step back, take a break, and recharge your batteries.
The best way to improve your effectiveness at what you already do well is to breathe, go for a change of scenery, and take some time off from the pressing duties that fill your life. It’s good to do that away from your home. If you take a stay-at-home vacation, you will be constantly reminded of the things you need to do there. If you can’t afford to get away, drive to a different part of your town for the day. Eat lunch at a restaurant you’ve never been to.
Wherever you take your break, try these things:
- Turn off your smartphone.
- Use some physical energy – that will recharge your mind.
- Do something that uses a totally different part of your brain than in normal life, such as drawing or doing puzzles.
- And get some extra sleep.
