Here are some things that Akutagawa International suggests:
If You Can?
Take a Trip!
It doesn't matter where it is just go. Sometimes we just need a change of scenery. It can be a small trip somewhere in your own country or you can fly to another. As a business professional you probably travel already and are thinking "I am always on a damn plane!" The difference is you are going somewhere you want, to do what you want to do. You will become excited just thinking about the fact that you have no one to report to but YOURSELF!
There are also ways to incorporate work with pleasure. Try to build a schedule before any business trip that can allow you to take some time to yourself to do a few fun things. It doesn't have to be a long amount of time, however, you want to be able to do something that isn't WORK related. You may encounter some problems during this experience but must force yourself to take ME time. It is greatly needed.
This is for both Men and Women!
People seem to think that mostly women go to spas. This may be true but the men are beginning to get with the program. A Massage is a massage and it doesn't matter if you are male, female, a baby, or dog, it is WONDERFUL! There are so many to choose from as well. It helps to get rid of that tension your body builds up. You can go to an elegant spa that may cost a little bit of money and just use all of their services or you may be on a tight budget and feel you can't have this done. Nothing is impossible. Believe it or not you can get a great massage for a lot cheaper by visiting one of the street or mall massage venders in your area. This may seem strange to some. It also seemed strange to our chairwoman. After talking her into it at a festival in NYC she agreed to try it. It was entertaining to see how she was uptight but once she sat in that massage chair and the man dressed all in black started the massage we couldn't get her up. Even if you have money for a great day spa sometimes smaller things are just as good or even better.
Buy yourself something nice!
It doesn't have to be anything expensive. Just take the time to reward yourself for your hard work! You can go to a local mall or even to a shopping square in your are. Buy a new outfit, or cologne, or even a new work suit! It doesn't matter what it is, just get it. Knowing you are able to reward yourself from time to time will help you stay motivated.
Have a drink or good food!
What ever your choice is have good food or good drinks with good people or by yourself. Sometimes it is needed just to step away from the corporate or business world. Find a good lounge close to home or the office. You will be glad you did.
Spend time with your family!
Some professionals get so caught up in work that they forget the important people around them. This happens to all of us. Remember to have a family day. Go shopping, out to eat, to a park for a BBQ! Family is important and we must remember that. Even if you decide to do something at home that is fine. Cook dinner together, play board games, and laugh. You deserve it.
