Escaping winter... hello sun! 

I worked super hard this last six months. It's the busiest I've ever been too, but it was so worth it when I checked my Xero account and I'd achieved a financial goal that I'd set five years ago. Super proud! In the wash up I realised the importance of worklife balance. I needed a mini break! So I jumped on a plane, threw on my thongs and headed for sun.

We stayed at the Padma Resort in Leggian, Bali. I've been there a couple of times now, and it always gets my vote for its beautiful gardens, spaces and of course - poolside cocktails.

One of our favourite vay cay activities was simply soaking up the sunset rays on the beach from 5pm every evening, with a Bintang for $2 and perching on a plastic chair smack bang on the sand. Heaven.

I am always amazed at how changing your environment can have such a positive impact on your health and stress levels. Returning from the trip last week, I have never felt so rejevated, refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of 2014.* It's a reminder for me to ensure I take some time - no matter how small - at least once a year. Easier said than done for most business owners, but absolutely vital as I have just discovered.

*The two pedicures and 2-hour pamp session may have contributed. Brilliant!
