 Burnout-Proof Your Biz Podcast with Chelsea B Foster | Episode 030 - How to Take a Sick Day (and Not Feel Bad About It) | Learn how to run your biz and live your dream life on your own terms without the fear of burnout.
 

As you may have heard, I was out sick last week. And this was the first time EVER that I let myself call in sick for nearly an entire week. E-V-E-R!

Sick days are amazing when we are kids! But as we grow up and start working, we somehow forget that we actually need to rest when we are sick. In this episode, I'm sharing my journey to finally being able to let myself take a sick day off - 4 in a row actually - and how you can get there too!

If you're ready to let yourself lay on the couch and just do nothing but rest the next time you get sick - this episode is for you! There are some things you can do now to prep yourself and your business for those sick days.

Today's Permission Slip:

Each episode I give you a permission slip - a reminder to give yourself permission to run your business and live your dream life on your own terms.

Today is simple - give yourself permission to rest when you need it.

It doesn’t do anyone any good (including yourself) when you “push through” illness. Your body needs to rest so it can heal.

 

I give myself permission to take time off when I am sick so I can let my body rest and heal and I can be my best self for my clients.
