Why having time for you is the best thing to do when running your photography business

One of the biggest reasons why I am able to keep going with my business and why I am successful is because I make it a point to take time to myself. I take a step back each day for “me” time. No work, no kids, no phone no distractions, NO NOTHING!

During this time, I go to the gym, I go to spin or I go to yoga. I am able to reflect on the day I am about to have, reflect on the week I have had, enjoy the “slow” time in my life during that moment and just enjoy.

The reason that I started working out in the first place was because of how it made me feel after. The high of the accomplishment and the way that it helps me stay in my creative mind on a daily basis.

Keeping a creative mind on a daily basis is the most important aspect of my business. How can I keep teaching you and mentoring you, if I am not in the right mind set? My one – on – one time with myself daily keeps me going for YOU!

Having this me time to myself really is the reason that I keep going. I know so many people who don’t take time to themselves and they get burnt out. If you get burnt out this is most likely the reason – your overwhelmed, over worked, tired. YOU NEED THIS TIME! This downtime is important. Enjoy it!

Today I challenge you to start taking time to yourself, take time to yourself everyday for at least 30 minutes. See if it makes a difference in your business.
