3 Reasons to Take a Vacation from Your Business

As small business owners, it’s easy to believe, the more time we spend within our businesses, the more successful our businesses will become. While sacrifices certainly need to be made for small business owners, especially early on in the small business journey, we wholeheartedly believe that rest can be a valuable part of building and growing a small business. Today, we’re sharing 3 reasons to take a vacation from your small business!

3 Reasons to Take a Vacation from Your Business

  1. To avoid burnout. Burnout is a very real issue for so many small business owners. As the sole owners of our businesses, we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders. We tell ourselves, “If I don’t care of XYZ, no one else will.” It’s a recipe for stress and eventually for burnout. Taking a vacation can help you to avoid burnout. (Wondering how you can possibly take a vacation? Follow our steps for vacation-proofing your business!)
  2. To stop “tunnel vision.” Sometimes, we [wrongly] believe if we think about something harder, or spend more time on an issue we’re facing in our business — we’ll find the solution or resolve the issue. Tunnel vision causes us to feel ‘trapped’ in one way of thinking — rather than stepping outside of the situation and gaining a new perspective. Taking a vacation can help you to gain a new perspective about your business. That’s why the best ideas pop up when we’re driving, walking, working out, talking with friends, or even doing nothing at all!
  3. To remind yourself there is more to life than your small business. Most importantly, taking a vacation from your business reminds you that there is more to life than your small business. As business owners, our businesses feel like everything. Our livelihood. Our hobby. Our mission. Our passion. However, our worth does not lie in our businesses or in our role as a business owner. Taking a vacation can remind you: You are enough just as you are.
