TC279: How to Take a Break and Really Unplug

Running a studio isn’t easy and because you work so hard, you definitely deserve to go on that dream holiday you’ve been wanting for so long. When it’s finally time to take one, you want to be able to relax and let go of all the worries that come with running a business. But it can be difficult to switch off completely! You have no idea how many times I’ve tried doing this but ended up checking my messages and emails in the middle of a beach somewhere.

Thankfully, I’ve learnt several ways in which I’m able to reduce distractions and really get away from it all. And that’s what I’m going to share with you in this episode – my 9-step checklist for ultimate relaxation when it’s time to take a break.
