There’s nothing that sums up the life of an entrepreneur or business owner quite like the word “hustle.” There’s ALWAYS something that needs to be done in our businesses—clients to acquire, products or services to deliver, and communications that need to be made, just to name a few.
It’s a frenetic energy that we embody most days.
But there’s another energy available to us that is just as powerful for our businesses—the relaxing energy of rest.
Ahhhhh, rest. It’s like a giant exhale after the whirlwind of our normal go-go-go lives. A time to kick up your feet and just BE—with your loved ones or with yourself, doing something (besides work!) that you love.
Often, though, rest doesn’t feel like an easy thing to do, doesn’t it?
We’re so programmed to do, strive, plan, and grow that it feels odd—even uncomfortable—to rest.
But rest is actually an essential ingredient for growth.
When you rest, you allow yourself to be in the moment, take a break, and recharge your “business batteries.” You’re able to come back into alignment with yourself and keep your business on track.
It also gives you the space and time to think about—and celebrate—your wins…all the things that have gone right in your business that need to be acknowledged.
Because there truly is so much that’s gone well, right?
It can be so easy to focus on all the things that haven’t gone well or what needs to be improved, but celebrating your wins is one great way to magnetize more wins into your business and your life. That’s because it creates an abundance mindset and shifts your focus onto how far you’ve come, instead of how far you still have to go.Celebrating your wins is a great way to magnetize more wins into your business and your life.

For all of these reasons, give you full permission to REST.
Take a walk, watch a movie, make a meal, converse with a great friend.
Whatever way you like to rest, embrace it. Be in the moment, celebrate your wins, and just have a relaxing and restful time.
Because the truth is: your business and your spirit will be better for it. And your clients and others you interact with will benefit, too, when you begin a new push toward your goals, recharged and full speed ahead.
