Runnin’ on Empty: The Importance of Re-charging

I’ve been feeling stressed lately and have had a hard time figuring out what was up. After a certain amount of whining, pondering, and ingesting mass quantities of chocolate, I realized I’ve been pushing too hard.

Does any of this sound familiar?

What have I been thinking?!?

Now that I’ve realized the insanity of this approach, I’m able to step back and re-group.  

When you’re running on empty, what do you do to revitalize yourself?  I’d love to hear about additional resources!

(By the way, if you live in the Twin Cities and love the idea of a working, in-town get-away, check out the business mini-retreat I’m hosting at the Landscape Arboretum in Chaska on February 23, 2012.  A real fireplace, free WiFi, free admission to the Arb…and 900 acres to roam in if that’s the activity that will re-charge you best.  I’d love to have you join us!)

(Last but not least, thanks to basykes for the horribly apt photo of overwhelm.  I found it in the Creative Commons section of flickr.)
