As we move into the heart of the summer it’s a great time to build in time for family, friends and renewal for yourself. Here’s what I wrote back in Teams365 #157 in June of 2014:
“Renewal is such an important process for us as leaders. Without regular attention to renewal it is very easy to move towards burnout, and depletion (mental, physical).
What do you do to renew? What energizes you and allows you to "turn off" even for a short while.
Digital detoxing is becoming more mainstream, with companies encouraging leaders to "turn off" during holiday time. Many studies over the past few years have shown that upwards of 50% of people don't shut off during holidays and continue to work through their vacation.
As you think about the upcoming summer months (for those in the northern hemisphere), what are your plans for renewal?
Given that the pace of change and information is not slowing down, what can you do to digitally detox this summer as well as renew?
