In the wedding industry, it is pretty typical for many of us to work every Saturday and sometimes Sundays. So, when do we take time off? Many of you don’t, I bet. It’s hard to “find” balance in your life when you don’t “create” balance in your life. It’s up to you to create this time off for yourself.
I’m going to share an easy tip that Kelly Simants, owner of Sweet Pea Events (and the other half of Sage Wedding Pros) does… she schedules herself off on Mondays. YEP – it’s that simple. She takes her weekend on Monday (and, if possible Sunday to Monday). This is critical time for her to spend with her family. She has shared with me that it was really challenging to do this in the beginning. She felt guilty because the ‘rest of the world’ works on Mondays. So, she made sure to schedule something fun for herself. Before she had her son Carson, it was an appointment at the nail salon. These days, it’s usually a fun kid activity. This ensures that she’s out of the house, out of the office, and taking a much-needed break.
How about you? How do you get your weekend?
