Running a small business can be all consuming ... in both a great and challenging way. We started swimming on Friday after work because we love it. During lockdown we were unable to get out and we both noticed it was harder to switch off at the weekend and be present with family and friends. Now we realise it is both fun AND essential to our wellbeing. I wonder what strategies other people use ....
