All Work and No Play…

We all know the saying, “All work and no play makes Jack and dull boy.”

I want to change that to be, “All work and no play makes you a big, stressed mess.”

Seriously…

We all get so caught up in everything we have to achieve, be, do and have that we forget to unwind.

If you drove your car non stop without fueling it and washing it and getting it serviced and letting it sit for a few hours, what would happen?

It would break down!

Now let me ask you this…

If you drive yourself non stop without getting the right food, taking care of yourself physically and feeding yourself emotionally, spiritually and HAVING FUN, what will happen?

YOU WILL BREAK DOWN!

I promise you this…

No matter how much money you need to make or how many things you need to do or how amazing you want your life to be…

YOU HAVE TO STOP AND HAVE FUN!

  • Play…
  • Laugh…
  • Do something just because…
  • Stop thinking…
  • Stop pushing…
  • Stop driving…
  • Play again…
  • Laugh some more…
  • Do something else just because…

You have to or you will break down!

Now, keep in mind that if you leave your car in the garage and don’t drive it the wheels will go flat and the car won’t run, so it’s all about balance…

But I promise you your capacity for money and love and greatness will expand if you allow yourself to play and have fun and LAUGH!

Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite way to relax and play and have fun!

Go Big!

Kristen

    I watched “Fellowship of the Ring” the last two nights, and it reminded me how happy it makes me when the good guys win against insurmountable odds. But what I really want to do is hike near Lake Tahoe and will try to do it tomorrow (Sunday). As a real estate agent, weekends are my best times to make money, and it scares me when I don’t have any showings scheduled. I have some today, so that will appease that taskmaster in my head. Thanks for the tip.

    Hello Kristen!

    Thanks so much for this message. It was a big tap on the shoulder. I have noticed physical manifestations of stress on my body . . . mainly upper back pain and migraine headaches. I’ve found that listening to meditation mp3’s such as Paul McKenna helps me to relax. Writing a song or sharing good times with loved ones is a way for me to enjoy myself and have fun.

    Thank you VERY VERY miuch Kristen. This is EXACTLY. What I needed to hear at EXACTLY the right time. I have a bit to deal wtih on my plate and I find myself not allowing myself to take a break. You illustrated the point very well that we must have balance. Not goofing off and getting nothing done but at the same, as more people tend to do (especially in times like this), work themselves way too hard which no good. I will make it a point to trust god, the universe, etc. more, do my part, and then let it go and have some fun. Thanks again very much.
