Do you take a break busy entrepreneur? Yes you?! And no walking to the kitchen or your local Starbucks is not what I’m thinking about.

A quick walk to your kitchen or local Starbucks is not an appropriate break from work!

Meet a friend or relative who has nothing to do with your business for lunch, or coffee counts as a refreshing and restorative break.

Going for a nice long walk counts, preferably in pleasant surroundings that have nothing to do with your line of work.

Taking a few hours to soak in a museum, watch your child play a sport, play with a child and or go to a movie (preferably something silly) counts.

Too often an entrepreneurs and business people we work from dawn til dusk, constantly dealing with one aspect of our business or another eating at our desks and or on the run.

Go ahead, and walk away for a few hours, or at the very least 30 minutes.

When you come back, you’ll find you’re refreshed and so much more productive. I find I accomplish so much more after enjoying a break.

This week I had a nice 45 minute lunch with my grown son. I listened to the many events in his life. It was wonderful. When I returned my desk I accomplished so much more and I had a smile on my face all day and the added benefit of a loving text from him later in the day telling me what a great Mom I am.

So you, yes you… it’s time to take a break
And then… yes you can get back to that work you enjoy!

A meal with someone you love is a wonderful break from a long entrepreneurial wok day!
