You have worked hard all year long and a well-deserved vacation is in order. Whether you’re dreaming of lying on the beach, spending time in the mountains or just relaxing at home, you might be worried about really taking a break from your busy life at the salon.
Vacations are a time to unplug from the daily grind; it’s a time to recharge our personal battery and to be able to return to work re-energized and re-focused. However, for many, being able to disconnect entirely is hard. We often fall prey to checking telephones, emails, text messages and/or calling into to the salon or spa.
Unplugging from work while on vacation can be difficult, especially if you’re trying to build your business, fill your appointment books, or build relationships with your customer base. After all, you might need a vacation, but your customers still need their haircut, facials, and nail services.
To help you completely unplug from the salon or spa while on vacation, it will take some planning and a great deal of self-discipline on your part. If you find you're not in a position to unplug 100%, there are ways to check-in without it consuming your rest and relaxation time.
Creating work and play balance in life is essential to a happy and healthy life. It’s important for everyone to be able to disconnect while on vacation. With a little planning, you'll have the opportunity to entirely unplug and enjoy your vacation.
