The importance of taking time out

Leonie Dawson is always talking about working smarter not harder.

She works 3 hours a day and has such a beautifully thriving business.  I love this advice!

Identify areas in your business or life you where you can improve your time management or productivity and this has nothing to do with working until midnight every night.

For me, identifying that I am so much more awake and productive and alert in the mornings means I don’t waste time trying to do anything important after 7 or 8 pm, or it’s simply counter-productive.

Similarly, taking time out, away from everything, or at least away from your normal routine, can also work wonders.  We went to the Garrotxa region of Catalonia a couple of weeks ago and I found it so restful and restorative being away for one little night.

Making time in my working day to grab a quick coffee with a friend or do some yoga is also simply maravilloso!!

How do you ‘fill your well’ and take time out?  I ‘d love to know your ideas!

With much love,
