Our society’s focus on not quitting has kept us from discerning what is actually meant for us and what is in alignment with our goals. That’s why episode 62 of The Positively Living Podcast is about the benefits of a business sabbatical! 

In this episode of The Positively Living Podcast, Katrina McGhee shares the importance of recognizing when it is time to take a break and actionable steps you can take right now to step away and get the things you truly need out of your break. 

Do you find yourself procrastinating? Feeling stuck or utterly overwhelmed? Want to make a change, but not even sure where to start? Let’s get you unstuck and moving again in just 30 minutes with a Productivity Boost Session. Go to www.positivelyproductive.com/offer and use the promo code PODCAST to get support and try out coaching for $97.

Katrina and I cover the following topics:

  • The warning signs to look for when you need to step away instead of just taking a small step back. 
  • What to do during your break, whether you planned it or not. 
  • The clarity and fresh spark for your passion that comes from stepping away from it and being reminded of why you do it in the first place. 
  • Establishing the “themes” or the things you need to get from your break.
  • Approaching re-entry into your business or career once your break is complete. 

It’s time to release the hustle culture mentality and learn for yourself how productive a break can be.
