|How do you balance work with relaxation?
still trying to figure that out but i do enjoy a glass of wine or two :)
I get to relax, at work. I am in my element there....it's art, not a job. When I walk in the door in the morning, I flip the lights on, and "sigh". I am home.
Being very early into our business this is the biggest struggle, but scheduling out time for family and relaxation is a must and seems to work the best for me.
Remains to be difficult - also on holidays emails are checked and answered as I dont have collegues who can do this for me.
Although checking mail on holidays and weekends also gives peace of mind. Not knowing what to miss would also create stress.
I don't :) My work is my relaxation.
Badly - I never relax enough, work hard play hard.
This is very difficult for me. Our Thai Silk Magic business is all-consuming at times as I am totally committed to it's success and the improvements it can deliver to my Thai village.
To relax fully I need to be alone and often take very long walks through our family rice farm checking the rice and turning off from the challenges, excitement and pressures of our handmade silk business.
My family are so supportive and that is very special to me especially my husband.
I also love to spend time with my two beautiful German shepherd dogs - both are more than 100kgs but they will always be "my puppies"
This is a difficult question. My relaxation depends on how much I have on my table. Sometimes work accompanies me even to my bed, and with the curse of the mobile and smart phone, one just hopes for the best every day..But there is no clear distinction between work and relaxation, especially when we are trying to build an organization with ever growing needs, and very limited resources..AMIS-CAMEROON is not MALIBU
By spending time with my horses. I also like to photograph nature.
Since November 2010, I've taken two days off per week for myself. To do what I want; like exercise, make a new recipe, or just rest. I suffer with Fibromyalgia, so it's important for me to listen to my body. Stress can cause a flair up of pain and fatigue so rest periods are paramount. Sticking to my days off can be difficult at times, but my office staff is good at looking out for me by encouraging me to eat lunch, take a break, or stay home if there is nothing pressing for me to do. Delegating has been important as well as rest periods and time off.
I'm not sure I do!
I've noticed an awful habit of dates turning into networking sessions as the guy asks what I do and we talk about business etc. Perhaps that explains why I'm still single?
It's too easy to spend all day and night at my computer so I try to take myself offline as often as possible - walking, out on my bike or sailing - anything where I can't be at the keyboard.
Working from home does mean it's easy to end up with work as your default activity.
A lot of my friends are people I've met through business too so we all have to make a conscious effort to leave the business talk at home when we go out socially.
I remind myself that there is a time for everything - generally if I am not on holiday or a day out or something like that, then I am ready to respond to work. Otherwise, my time is my time, plan for your free time (make sure people have enough to do, don't release while you're on holiday or something stupid like that ;)) and you will be able to relax.
I am better now but I am addicted to my I phone and think I check emails in my sleep. I love doing sports particularly Football, and love cooking and also supporting my beloved Liverpool Football Club (although over reasons years it has been more stressful than relaxing!)
I randomly find I stand up and go for walks, I naturally just lean back from the task at hand for short bits. I'm always bouncing in and out of work.
I live to work on great apps. I also make a living doing so. But first and foremost, the reason I live is to make great products.
