This has been something I have always had to deal with. I have a go-go-GOOO personality. I am not Type-A, organized, procedural, or adept at time-management. And I think that may contribute to burn-out. If someone thinks of a way to do the mundane processes of life (ie-my husband thought of labeling the boys’ laundry baskets, rather than just mixing their clothes, or labeling their drawers-they share a room) I am all for it. BUT I don’t think of those things on my own. I have found that I can think of a million new ways to grow my stella & dot biz. And have created many different campaigns for our stylist community at large. I love social media/networking and the connections it provides. The drawback to all this, is that I don’t take the time to rest and relax. I have discovered a few things that work really for me:
working out daily
10 minute mind breaks
protein shakes (I find I eat less when super-busy)
bed by 9
