Make One Day a Week a "No Work Day"
To be fair, I have to give credit to my husband for this suggestion. There is so much going on in our home and our lives that if I wanted to, I could do nothing but housework, kid-work, and business-work until the world came to an end. It was suggested that I pick one day a week to consistently do no work of any kind. No business. No cleaning. No yard work. It's not easy to go cold turkey, but I'm making progress. Last Sunday, I checked email only once and my sole project was finishing decorating the boys' room. Truth be told, I felt quite refreshed as I crawled into bed that night!
