Summer is in full swing, and you may feel like taking a much-needed break. While there is certainly nothing wrong with recharging your batteries, your competition may not be resting on their laurels. While you can adjust your attitude during the summer, it doesn’t mean that you should forget about your small business completely. Here are five ways you can stay productive this summer and make a positive difference in your company.

1. Look for Ways to Achieve Balance

It’s easy to work long days in the winter when the weather is poor and there is nothing to do. The same cannot be said for summer. Spend your time determining how you can build a schedule that gives you time for work and a social life.

2. Get Outside

The weather is gorgeous, so take advantage of it. Get out of your office and go outside. If you don’t have an outdoor space to work, consider creating one. If you don’t want to create one, grab your laptop and head to the local park or beach.The fresh air and sunshine will help you recharge your batteries.

3. Adjust Your Sleep Schedule

Now is a great time to get into good sleeping habits. You won’t be any good for your business if you live in a state of perpetual exhaustion. Go to bed at the same time every night and set your alarm for the same time every morning. You will feel better.

4. Wake Up Your Brain

Even if you don’t feel it, your brain gets bored doing the same thing every day. Make summer a time that you do something new. Learn a new skill, take part in a new activity — do something that you don’t normally do to kick your brain back in high gear.

5. Re-Evaluate Your Goals

Now that you have a bit of downtime, re-evaluate your short and long-term goals.Take a look at where you are and where you want to be. It’s a perfect time to readjust and realign.
