One-Day Retreat ~ Renew & Refocus

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Beam & Branch Realty TREC #547752

Each year, we take a break from work and engage in a one-day retreat. I choose a different book each year that we use as a guide for the entire year. It's an opportunity to put the focus on ourselves and to grow as a team.

We close our office, escape to an off-site location and put our heads together in order to renew our souls, refocus, and rewire our thinking. The book we are using this year is, Winning the War in Your Mind, by Craig Groeschel. The message of the book is basically, to rid ourselves of "stinkin thinkin"!

Taking the time to forget about business for a minute is a great way to begin the year with a much-needed reset. I look forward to this event each year. We ended the retreat by taking everyone to a local spa to enjoy pedicures.

Even if you cannot do an entire office team retreat, maybe you can take yourself to a mini-self retreat. Taking the time to take care of yourself is an excellent way to stay in balance. A change of scenery is always a good idea.

Paula,  taking mini-retreats or what others call a day stay-cation feeds the heart, mind, body, and soul. One thing I have added to my daily routine this year, which I used to do without thinking, is reading for at least 30 minutes a day.  With so much division and negativity in the world today, we must keep the stinkin thinkin out of our mind and heart.

Thank you, Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist - I despise the "stinkin thinkin" mindset. So unproductive and unnecessary.

Events like your one day retreat make an important contribution to being able to recharge, Paula.
