Has it been a while since you have taken some time off? Are you planning to take some well-deserved vacation? Taking some time off to recharge your batteries is not only a good idea, but also a smart idea.

Most small business owners typically work a seven-day week. While they may not be working every hour, they most likely are thinking about their small business all the time. What is planned for next week, how to get the next customer, hiring decisions, and hundreds of other things, day-after-day, week-after-week, and month-after-month.

This can all add up. While taking some time off may be counter-intuitive thinking for a small business owner who works 24/7, it’s a necessity to avoid burnout, stress and health issues.

Most small business owners will tell you that if they are on vacation they can’t stop thinking about their business. That’s OK. Some of the best new business ideas have been formulated from a beach chair or during a round of golf. Just because you are on vacation doesn’t mean you can’t do some valuable things for your business.

Taking some time off doesn’t have to be a lavish two-week vacation. It could be just a bunch of three- or four-day weekends. And while most people think of vacations as traveling somewhere, you actually can take time off without leaving your home.

As a hard working small business owner, there is no better time than the upcoming fall months to take some time off. You may just come up with a great idea while having an umbrella drink on the beach that skyrockets your sales!
