Everyday we wake up, drink coffee (we love coffee), open our computers and work on this amazing company we are building. I don't think we can count on our hands the number of times in the past year that we didn't open our computers for a whole day! It all started in September 2016 when Yes We Vibe was officially created and we have been "grinding" as we call it, almost everyday since. Sometimes in life you forget to take time for yourself. I think we all do. You work, take care of your loved ones and family and lots of times you forget to take a break, relax, do nothing or anything, but just take some time to free your mind.
It was a cold day here in Quebec, Canada. The first ones are always the worst because they just feel freezing compared to summer! The sun was coming out of the clouds from time to time but never too long! Part of our team was working here together and we decided to go take a hike in the mountain and take some nice photos for our Instagram! Some of us were not too excited about the idea but... we just had to do it! And you know what? It turned the days around! It created such a nice vibe! The trail up the hill was not too long but just enough to feel the fresh air really coming in! At the top, the view was just amazing! You could see a small lake way down and then only forest! We had fun taking pictures, enjoying the view, the calm vibe of the nature and the refreshing air! After a little while we went back down, got a bit lost for a minute but found our way back to the cars!
We went home and got back to the "grind" but it felt so good to have done something else in the surrounding nature. Although we still got some things done for the company, we had fun, got away from our computers for a while and it relaxed our minds for sure! It didn't take hours but it felt like a day off for a little while and we came back fresh to start grinding again!
All this to say that little things can have big effects. Don't be afraid to stop for a bit, even if it's just 15 minutes on a park bench to have some positive thoughts about something. Simply stop, relax and take time for you!
