How I stay sane as an Author and Publisher
Good Morning World:
Owning a business (especially in the publishing field) requires most of my time and effort. But, I try not to let it overwhelm me so I make sure to take some time for me by doing something that will make me happy on a daily basis. Whether it's a little window shopping or sit on a bench on Central Park, NY and read. So my advise is to always find some time for yourself.
Great advice. I enjoy nature too. I like to sit downtown by the Maumee River and watch the boats or even just the flow of the water itself. Writing is my outlet and sanity from the real world so I always use it as an escape whether it's something I will publish or not.
I am also admittedly a Candy Crusher. It is my mindless activity for when I have to totally decompress and it's nothing that requires meditation or prayer.
This is great advice. As a full time accountant, mother and wife, it is difficult also doubling as a self published author. I have to find time to write and market, while also spending quality time with my family and creating down time to BS around for myself. It's difficult to juggle, and I can't say that I actually have been able to successfully do it yet... but I'm trying!
