Things for Brokers to Do When Not on the Job

Being an insurance broker can be stressful, long, and challenging work. Days can be long, and time to do what you enjoy may be few and far between. That’s why it is extra important to make a valiant effort to find time for yourself, family and friends. Here are a few things we suggest to you when work is hard and you just want to enjoy life.

  1. Take a Day Trip

For those out there who are moms, dads, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, etc., get out for a day. Find an attraction near where you live and get a group together to go. It could just be the family, or you could organize an entire bus. The important thing is that you can clear your head from the stress of work and enjoy some seriously needed time away. Take it all in, and forget about work until you have to go back; this is your time!

  1. Plan a Picnic/Party

Depending on your style, you can plan a weekend picnic or party. If you want to have a picnic, ask each of the guests coming to bring something different to eat and a couple people to bring plates, cups, forks, knives, etc. If you have a party, consider making it a theme like “Caribbean Getaway” or “A Blast from the Past”. Going out is fun, but dressing up to go out is even better. Like the picnic, you can ask your guests to each bring some beverages and snacks. Don’t forget to have plenty of cups on hand at all times and put away any valuables depending how wild your crowd might get!

  1. Have a Routine Night Out

This is something that every busy adult should do, not just insurance brokers. If you have a routine night out with friends or family, it will give you something to always look forward to. Try to make it early/mid week. Wednesdays are great because Monday is further than Friday at that point, so you can turn your positive energy to the rest of the week!

  1. Get Active

Being physically active is absolutely crucial. It doesn’t matter if it is a couple hours at the gym or a leisurely walk around the neighborhood each night. You should not go from home to work to bed, it’s just bad for you. If you need some extra motivation buy a FitBit and track how much activity you actually do.
