Are you taking time away?

It’s always wonderful to come home after a vacation –no matter what the weather returning to – feeling refreshed and recharged – so that no matter what stormy weather or circumstances you may encounter upon your return, your self confidence, belief in convictions and ability to cope/reasoning skills have been fortified.

Just back from Panama! The beach scenes are from lovely Playa Blanca; the others from Panama City old section:

Managing Emails on Vacation

From newsday.com by JAMIE HERZLICH

It’s hard enough managing the deluge of emails that comes in on a daily basis, but it’s an even heftier task dealing with it while on vacation. For most entrepreneurs, it’s almost impossible to totally disconnect from email for any long period of time.

With 59 percent of entrepreneurs planning to take at least one full week off this summer, according to an American Express OPEN survey, they’ll need to prioritize and set boundaries so they don’t become slaves to their inboxes.

Women View Vacations as Priority

From The Balance & Power Blog

I recently came across this on the internet- I am a firm believer in the importance of vacations.

A new survey finds that when it comes to women, the emotional rewards of a vacation are often key drivers in where they choose to spend their holiday getaways.

It's hard enough managing the deluge of emails

 scroll down to see my section “set expectations”.
It’s hard enough managing the deluge of emails that comes in on a daily basis, but it’s an even heftier task dealing with it while on vacation.
For most entrepreneurs, it’s almost impossible to totally disconnect from email for any long period of time.
With 59 percent of entrepreneurs planning to take at least one full week off this summer, according to an American Express OPEN survey, they’ll need to prioritize and set boundaries so they don’t become slaves to their inboxes.
“It’s definitely a balancing act,” says Alice Bredin, a Cambridge, Massachusetts, small-business adviser to American Express OPEN, the small-business arm of American Express.
In most cases, business owners vacationing for a week aren’t going to have a complete email break, and they don’t need to in order to refresh, she says.
It’s partly “just accepting the fact that a great vacation for you is keeping in touch,” she notes.
This year’s survey results show that executives are still confident enough to leave their businesses for a full week. The results are just slightly down from last year’s 60 percent, but well above 2013’s 49 percent, according to OPEN’s Spring 2015 Small Business Monitor.
“To me that says business owners feel confident enough that they’ll be getting the orders they need and customers in the door that they can take some time away,” says Bredin.
Establish limits. If you’re going to stay connected, set limits on the number of times per day or week that you’ll check email, suggests Nancy Flynn, executive director of the Columbus, Ohio-based ePolicy Institute, a training and consulting organization, and author of “Writing Effective E-Mail, 3rd Ed.” (Crisp; $19.95).
Nearly 20 years ago she had a vacation ruined by a client who left her daily voice mail and email messages, she said. They kept missing each other, and when Flynn returned, she realized there had been no real emergency on the client’s part.
That broke her from the habit of constantly checking email while on vacation.
She suggests prioritizing and replying to messages that truly are urgent and require a timely response. Flynn tells clients if there’s something urgent or a crisis, to text her instead of sending an email.
You can also create a VIP email folder, says Steve Davies, president of the Nassau Chapter of The Alternative Board, a business consultancy, and TheTimeEdge.com, which provides time management solutions.
You can flag specific email addresses to show up in that folder; that’s what he does when he’s away.
“If you have 10 key clients that you drop everything for, then you put them in your VIP email list,” says Davies. You can tell them you’ll be away but that their emails will be coming into a special mailbox.
He also creates folders called “filing,” “upon return” and “assistant.” He’ll check his emails once or twice daily when he’s away and won’t necessarily respond to each one, but at the very least he will move them into one of those folders.
Set expectations. Create an out-of-office auto-responder email to let clients know you’re traveling and won’t be responding to emails, says Eileen Lichtenstein, chief executive of Balance & Power Inc. in Westbury, a coaching firm that specializes in work-life and stress/anger issues.
If you can swing it, carve out a couple of days where you totally disconnect, she says. Just be sure to choose those days carefully around times when you don’t expect any pressing demands, she notes.
When Lichtenstein is away, she makes it a point to check her emails on a landline computer at a hotel or Internet cafe rather then constantly check her phone.
“That frees me up,” she says. “It separates me from my phone.”

194523_1850294227922_1557737766_1906403_522253_oThis article on post vacation re-entry tips by Jamie Herzlich has me quoted in Newsday . Here’s the link to the entire article: http://www.newsday.com/business/columnists/jamie-herzlich/small-business-before-vacation-plan-for-re-entry-1.8420147

” Set up an automatic email email response to let people know you’ll be out of the office.”

You may also enlist the services of a telephone answering service, which can help screen calls and alert you if you need to respond to something while you’re away.” (I’ve done this myself :))

“Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed.  On your way home, mentally relive your vacation a bit so you have it fresh in your mind and you can access these visualizations daily.”

“Perhaps even build time into your to do list to transfer photos from your camera to your computer.”

“Don’t lose the essence of your vacation.”

Extra pressure from the holidays on both our personal and professional lives can affect our home life, as well as result in reduced productivity at work.  Here are some tips for coping with holiday stress at work: 

  1. Keep up your routines of exercise. This helps to keep up your resistance, maintain energy and has the stress reducing endorphin spillover effect.
  2. Everything in moderation re food-alcohol.
  3. If someone is “pressing your buttons” at work, respond v. react.  If you feel yourself angry, leave and take a break.
  4. Smile! The physical acts of smiling and laughing are stress reducers!
  5. Say NO without guilt.
  6. Keep your priorities straight!  Review and regroup throughout the day.
  7. Take frequent breaks.
  8. Practice mindful meditation at home or work daily.
  9. Breathe!
  10. Dream of your next vacation!   Image

 Hi Everyone! I’m back from a wonderful vacation-trip to London and visit with (first) baby grandson! and family and to Loire, France for castles and sunflowers!  (scroll down for 10 tips:))


10 Tips for Smooth Travel Vacations and Fun:

  • Anticipate having a wonderful time
  • If something goes wrong  or not according to plan, try to see the humor in it and move on.
  • Once you’re settled in and go exploring, allow yourself to “get lost”.  ie: don’t have your nose glued to a map.
  • Know key phrases in the language.
  • Take some  downtime everyday or a siesta to relax and recharge.
  • Take extra time for family when you’re visiting…
  • Stay unconnected to the internet, phone, TV, newspaper for as much and as long as possible.  
  • Bring home meaningful mementos-souvenirs-photos.
  • Compromise as much as possible with your travel mate(s) – After all,
  • you came to have a good time and probably have tickets home together…
  • Enjoy!!!

What makes you happy?

When you discover that equation then I know you will get lots of compliments re: you’re looking great! and I hope you can say “thanks!” – like I’ve been doing since I’ve been in the semi-public eye for 3 days since my return from fun-family vacationing and adventures in Europe.Free HAPP...

What’s different?  I’ve been noticing all day today here in Long Island, NY   that my work load is lighter (since I’ve given myself time to catch up) and that I’m not in a hurry to complete  something or get somewhere.  I’ve had extreme patience (for me) at MD’s office’s and bank business.  That’s really different…

Free pati...

I’ve not attended any evening events (due to jetlag).  Jetlag is gone now (speeded up with acupuncture and light treatments:))

 and I’ve really been able to catch up.  Many lessons here…

Sometimes as entrepreneurs/small biz owners we must be on overload, even when we do not realize it.  This week has shown me, once again, how important it is to take an extended time off.

Just do it- it’s good for you- and you’ll look great!

Vacations are wonderful. No matter when or where- I am a big fan of time away with faith that it is the right time-place-people that you have arranged it with.  It is extra wonderful when you make a pact of no phones- and no or occassional computer.  Really!  Some adjustments  and maybe some extra down time- but hey isn’t that what you sign up for when its a vacation?  I’m just back from Europe, jetlagged and refreshed at the same time.  Ready to connect and reconnect.  Be here in the right time-place: now. I even handled my emergency “root canal” OK and made clear choices.Throughout your day, it’s important to take “mini-vacations”.  Take breaks throughout the work day to become centered and release stress/frustration.  Did you know that when you have no stress you are 100% more productive.  Of course, some stress is OK- and their is “good stress” too- like getting married, going on a vacation..Your body doesn’t know the difference, and the adrenalin and cortisol kick in. A long flight is a great place to practice relaxation techniques.  Afraid of flying? I have facilitated amazing turn-arounds with EFT and de-sensitiving techniques that include visualization.
Stress is cumulative; dispersing it can shift productivity and up creativity and confidence.  If you need help with this, you may contact me for a complimentary peak performance coaching consult. www.balanceandpower.com/stressmanagement.php.  My one:one and group coaching sessions are conducted via phone, skype, and in Wantagh or RVC Long Island.   I am also available to facilitate trainings in stress, anger management (I’m a certified AM specialist) and related issues via webinar and at your site.
