When a piece of technology in your house doesn’t work, what is usually one of the first things you do to try to correct the issue? You try unplugging it and rebooting it. It’s the fix it solution even IT support departments recommend at first. I mean I cannot tell you how many times I have heard that. But did you know this is something you need to be regularly doing from your business? It’s so important for you to unplug and reboot for both your personal and professional growth.
Necessity, not a luxury…
The reality is it’s really NOT a luxury to unplug and reboot. It’s a necessity. Here’s the thing…when you give your mind and your body time to just unplug, you will be amazed at how energizing it can be. All of a sudden, your brain is going to start flooding with information.
If you’re feeling like you’ve got writer’s block or can’t get in a creative flow to create new content, I want you to literally take a whole day off! Unplug! Go take your weekend off! If you can get out of town, then go get out of town. Whatever it is that you need to do so that you can unplug, DO IT!! You need to give your brain a break so that it can be restored and renewed.
This is something that became a non negotiable for me in 2021. I make it a point now to get away and unplug. This means I keep the phone off and stay off social media. I can honestly tell you that every single time I do that, the amount of information that downloads into my brain, as far as creativity and ideas, is incredible. They just start flowing. It’s crazy to see what happens when you unplug and you give your mind time to just rest. Your brain can only handle so much.
When was the last time you unplugged?
The next time a piece of technology isn’t working in your home, and you unplug it… I want you to ask yourself when was the last time you unplugged yourself. I challenge you to get an unplugged day scheduled on your calendar in the next 7-10 days. That is truly how important this concept is.
I don’t care even if you are feeling like everything is moving fast or everything’s going well and you’re in the flow. I still want you to unplug. I want you to reboot. I want you to take that time to give yourself a break. I promise you that you will be amazed.
If you’ve never done this before, it’s going to be tough. But each time that you do it, it gets easier and easier. It doesn’t even have to be for a long time. You can just take a half a day off. You could take Friday off. Or I don’t know…maybe you can actually take a whole weekend to get away.
Give your brain time to relax. It doesn’t matter what it is you do as long as you truly unplug and get away from your business. Your brain needs it. Your body needs it. Your business relies on it. That’s a really powerful statement right there but I swear by it. Your business relies on you to take a break.
Get it scheduled…
So do that today! Get it scheduled! I want you to it on social media and tag me. I mean it! Take a picture of your calendar with a big gray block that says “unplug and reboot”. Tag me on Instagram @michelle_denio.
Then, when you come back, tell me how it felt. I’ll take it one step further and ask you to encourage somebody else to do the same. Tag your biz bestie and tell them to unplug and reboot.
Turn your phone off . Truly and fully unplug and reboot. If you turn your phone off, then there’s no temptation there. Just tell the people who need to know that you’re unplugging for a little bit, and you’ll be back. Remember…your business relies on you to take a break. Get it scheduled.
