I was one of the fortunate ones who had a recent snow day. Conditions were such that my office was closed for the day. And the roads were a mess so it was the perfect day to stay indoors.
I did some work because I didn’t want to get behind. And because the emails weren’t coming in rapidly and no one was popping into my office, I was able to get lots done in a few hours.
That left me time to recharge.
It started before I even did my official work. I put on relaxed clothes and didn’t worry about hair or make-up. I didn’t have to pack my lunch.
Simplifying my morning routine definitely started the day off right.
I identified a few tasks that I had not completed the past weekend and set aside a bit of time to finish those tasks. They, too, were done in no time.
Then there was time to read a book, watch a movie and listen to music. All things that relax and recharge me and that, too often, don’t make it to the top of “The List.”
Instead of going to the gym, I shoveled the driveway. The exercise and the fresh air were good for me.
A snow day was the perfect way to recharge and remind myself of what I should do on a regular basis to stay energized. Do you know what you need to recharge?
