BECAUSE CLEAR SKIES ALWAYS FOLLOW!
LEARNING TO RELAX
Relaxing has been something I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember. When I started in real estate I was also working a full time job from 8-5, then I’d show houses & go on appointments at night & weekends. Even when I went full time into real estate, I didn’t take days off, even though I could have. As soon as I’d start to unwind, I’d have this overwhelming guilt thinking of all the things I COULD BE doing & fear would take over.
Don’t get me wrong, the years of sacrificing are what built our company and got me to a place that I could actually relax. With that said, if I could do it over again, I would have taken better care of myself through those years of building.
Over the last 6 months I’ve finally learned to give myself permission to relax, and that’s a huge accomplishment for me. I’ve learned to listen to my body and take it easy when I need to. If you’re struggling with this, please know that the world won’t end if you take a day off. You owe it to yourself, your family, and friends to unwind and give the best version of you. This isn’t a lesson you want to learn the hard way!
