nichola english - the wardrobe provocateur

Downtime is so important to maintaining a healthy work life balance. I love to see a good action movie at the cinema with pick and mix, then head off to a restaurant with family afterwards. It really does fill me up and allow me to regain perspective. 


alessandra maderni - shipsomnia & mad fresh entertainment 

I feel happy and grateful knowing that I’m able to live my journey the way I envision it. It’s the freedom of knowing that I’m doing what I’m doing not because I have to but because I want to and that makes me happy. I’m a bit of an introvert and like spending my downtime with people that I love and trust.

For me, family time makes me truly happy, if I have the right people around me downtime is very easy.

Aside from the love of my work taking me into the pathway of so many beautiful souls, I love my grand-daughter and I love how being with her and playing in sand, painting, reading, walking and talking, she is so fascinating.  I see her soul and she sees mine.  My downtime is writing and I even took a little University Course this summertime which I am delighted I passed with Credit.   Ongoing works are produced and I look forward to being published soon.

NATASHA LEE MAXWELL - that girl & mdct.net

Spending time with my family and friends is what I enjoy the most. When i' around those I love, it's never business questions or professionalism required. I'm just a girl to them and I love it!! I love to fine dine, travel, shop, give praises to Jehovah and build a ton of businesses. Lastly, I love to connect with likeminded people globally and make others smile and be comfortable being them.

Well firstly my daughter laughing and being blessed enough to live the life I do. I handle downtime so much better than my monkey brain used to. It all goes back to the commitment to daily practice.

claire hall - CLAIRE H TANNING & BEAUTY, THE RETREAT SPA, THE NO1 TRAINING ACADEMY

Knowing I have the best Partner and support from him every day.  He is my rock and together we can achieve anything.  I love the fact that when I am working he has my daughter and vice versa we challenge everything together.  It's not always easy but we are managing and will continue too forever and a day. 

Until I had my Gorgeous Lilley Grace I never knew what down time was and I can honestly say this was always dangerous for me as I always was looking for something new.  Now I love my own special time with my daughter where I can have my days all about her (although it is hard with everything going on) we have lots of fun on weekends.

jean young -  jean@uptowngirl 

I am a bit of a workaholic constantly working and rarely ever taking much time off. I have a dedicated office at home I spend a lot of time in when I am not working in the shop or out at events & I do find it hard to switch off. I am however blessed with an amazing family who have been very supportive. My husband and my family are very important to me and I love spending quality time with them. I also have two stepdaughters and a step grandson now with another step grand baby girl on the way due in September.

I have a lot to be thankful for.


GUY ADAMS - ENSPIRE DESIGN

A quiet movie theatre with a perfectly popped bag of popcorn, I try to just relax, I have two jobs that take up a lot of my time so when downtime comes I like to switch off and recharge.
