It’s been about a month since I have written a blog post on my personal blog. In fact, I have been blogging at Childcarebusinessowner.com and busy getting organized for the upcoming year at my Child Care Facility.
If you are a new follower of my blog, I want to take the time to wish you a Happy New Year and say thank you for following my blog post. Furthermore, my hope is that 2014 will be an Epic Year for You and Your Family!!
This week I want to inspire you to take better care of you in 2014. This past Friday, I decided to only work a half day at my Child Care Center and visit the hair salon, along with take care of my household needs.
As I sat under the dryer at the hair salon and browsed through some health magazines, I was reminded that I must be balanced in all that I do and take care of me in 2014.
I’m not saying this in a selfish way, I am simply inspiring you to take the time to do the following to have balance in your personal and Business endeavors:
- Eat healthy
- Exercise at least 20 minutes a day
- Have a girls night out
- Relax daily with a cup of hot tea, read a great book, etc.
- Calm your mind with meditation daily
- Build your spirit by stilling your mind, reading more spiritual books.
- Let go of thoughts and situations that stress you out!
I think you get the point!
Its time to be healthier, relax more and be at peace with you. As a Business Owner of 14 years, I spent many of my business years, stressing over issues in my business, until recently.
In December 2013, Let go and let God. So, I decided to take a two-week sabbatical from my Child Care Facility. I trusted that my staff would do a great job while I was away and they exceeded my expectations.
As the year came to an end, I felt it was time for me to take a break, reflect and relax.
What I know for sure about Stress: Stress wears down your mind, it wears down your body and guess what? When you are gone, the stress will still be here.
So, be sure to develop a plan to take care of you in 2014 and Let Go and Let God! If you are a Business Owner (as many of my blog readers are) or even a Busy Mom…..I challenge you to do more of what inspires you in 2014 and delegate all other duties.
There is such a release that comes with delegation!
What I’m up to….
In 2014, I decided to do more of what I love and that is: Teach, inspire and empower others. So I have formed a Business Expansion Mastermind Group for Child Care Business Owners. I expanded my Child Care Business in 2003 and I know what it is like to need information and guidance to go to the next level. Also, I know what it is like to struggle, because I was not prepared to be a leader. Get more information about my Mastermind group Now!
Be sure to leave your thoughts and comments about this week’s blog post and I will join the conversation soon!
More to come next week….
