Being a beauty entrepreneur means changing priorities and doing as many things as possible. You are focused on growth and usually you think you don’t have enough time to complete all the activities that are being required. This can be overwhelming but don’t worry, it’s normal and you are not alone.
As a business owner, you may spend long hours doing the hard work since there are limited resources or it may be hard for you to delegate.
Today’s demands on our time can be challenging, especially running a business. No matter what your lifestyle demands, you have to avoid burning out.
However, we are here to tell you that it is important to take some time for yourself. Most of us prioritize our business needs above our own in an effort to not feel guilty for not working as hard as we would like, but this is not healthy.
Here are some reasons to explain to you why it might make sense for you to take some time out for yourself.
1. Relieve stress
It’s easier to feel exhausted if you don’t prioritize your “me” time. When you are constantly under pressure, your stress levels increase, and eventually you burn out. It’s necessary to recharge your batteries, and lower your stress levels by taking some time out
How do you define “me” time? “Me” time doesn’t have to mean doing something by yourself, it can simply mean doing something you enjoy. This could be reading a book or our blog post , going for a walk with friends or watching a movie with your partner.
Also, you can try new alternatives such as meditation (you can use an app to guide you), try a new recipe or even take a relaxing bath.
2. Be productive by resetting your brain.
A never-ending list of tasks and working from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep is not ideal. Our brains aren’t built to focus for long periods of time. Taking regular breaks helps you stay focused. A pleasant break can refresh you and get you back on track.
3. Make it easier to concentrate and solve problems.
When the brain is constantly thinking about a matter, it becomes increasingly hard to see the problems from a different perspective and find out an efficient solution. Many times, you will discover that the solution will suddenly arise to you simply because you are not trying to force it.
4. Self-discovery time.
Sometimes we need to take a step back and evaluate where we are. What matters most to you? Where do you stand? Where do you want to go? In the chaos of the daily routine, sometimes we lose sight of what we really want. When our actions are not aligned with our goals, we can lose ourselves.
You should remember that quality over quantity is what matters most when it comes to your “me” time. No matter what your schedule looks like, make sure you take ten minutes to focus on something that inspires you. Disconnect from technology and take a break.
