The pressures of being an entrepreneur can be overwhelming. You must have outlets and even guilty pleasure you turn to for a release. This is not contrary to the idea of being an entrepreneur. This is actually a way to be a healthier, happier, more productive and more eﬃcient entrepreneur.
Whether it is bourbon, working out, yoga, meditation, spending time with your family or going to the movies alone, you need your release. Not only will you get the benefit of the release, but also your perspective will change. When we are wrapped up in our own world, it is diﬃcult to see beyond our four walls. When you break a sweat, or think about the sacrifice of others, or see a child smile, your brain takes a break. It stops focusing on all of the things on your plate (and all the things you are not getting to). Give your brain a well-deserved time out and it will really clear your head. This leads to new ideas, new ways of thinking and new, often more creative solutions to problems. Find your release and make it a part of your week.
