In the last month, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Kansas City, Jamaica, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. Each trip was rewarding and different in its own right. But the main aspect of each trip was to relax, relate and release. That line comes from an episode of A Different World when Whitley Gilbert met with her therapist to discuss lowering stress and anxiety while living such a busy life. Hence the picture above.
How many of us can relate to that? We are so busy and caught up in the everyday trials of life that we forget to relax, relate and release. The opportunity to put our bodies and minds at rest is crucial. We cannot expect to perform at high levels if our physical and mental health is not at its peak. The same goes for our businesses. We must learn when we are pushing to hard for things that are not beneficial or identify advantages. We must relate our personal experiences to our business experiences so we see the meaning in what we do. Finally, we must release the negativity and problematic from our business so we can flourish deservedly.
Trust me, I know it’s not easy to relax in times of crisis or when invoices are due. However, a good business owner is a good steward of their wealth and health! You cannot run a business if you are not around to run it. So learn how to relax, relate and release!
Have an awesome day!
