“People who cannot find time for recreation are obliged sooner or later to find time for illness.”

Good morning peeps, meditation done.

Quote for the Day:

“People who cannot find time for recreation are obliged sooner or later to find time for illness.”

John Wanamaker

I have woken up not feeling that great today, I am really tired, it’s freezing there is a terrible storm outside, the wind is howling and the rain is beating against the window, it’s cold, dark and miserable, I have looked at the date and to my horror I realise it’s Friday the 13th. Oh no can I go back to sleep, wake up at start the day again please?

I look at today’s quote and realise why I am feeling so bad. Yesterday I was literally on my computer from 4.30am until 8pm, crunching numbers, stopping only to walk to the shops with Zeus and getting caught out and drenched in a blizzard as we walked along the beach, which was not fun.

Getting the numbers right — balancing the wages, fit out and operating costs against incoming revenue from membership subscriptions and class packs is crucial to the success of my business and has become all encompassing and I realise that I need to switch off, unwind and relax with some quality recreational time other wise I am going to make myself ill.

If I make myself ill that will be a disaster and will set me back in my drive towards my goals.

I think there is a tendency for a lot of people to work too hard to meet deadlines and not think of the consequences of failing to take recreational time out for yourself.

It is very important to find balance in your life, the harder you work, the more your stress levels will increase and this needs to be counter balanced by spending enough time to relax, unwind and enjoy yourself to release the stress that has built up inside your body and mind.

If stress is left to build up inside your body and mind over time, then you can be sure of one thing, you will get ill and if left too long it could eventually kill you.

Stress kills, there is no doubt about it stress is one of the most major contributors for major illness and death in modern society.

So make sure you take time out for yourself and spend time doing recreational activities with your friends and family today, this weekend and in your life in general.

Make sure you have a fun Friday peeps and a wonderful weekend.

May all your dreams come true.
