As a part of our Friday Nights, Saturday Mornings feature, we're talking to some of our favorite boss ladies about their weekends, their way. How do they relax, recharge and refuel? As we all know, life shouldn't be all about work. It's what we do beyond business and career that help keep us motivated and able to dominate for the week ahead.
This month, we're chatting with entrepreneur and lifestyle content creator Dayna Bolden of Bolden Creative Media. Dayna's work focuses on inspiring women to keep love, passion, and style at the center of their lives. Read on to learn how she balances motherhood, family, and business while taking time for herself.
How she spends her Fridays:
"A Friday night will be spent with my family. Because my weeks are so busy, being able to 'clock out' of work and hang out with my family is something I enjoy most. We will either go out to eat or order pizza and chill in the living room together while Netflix and chilling."

Her perfect Saturday morning:
"On Saturday mornings, I recharge by getting organized from the previous week. I love waking up, turning on my old school playlist and organizing and cleaning my home. Built up mess gives me anxiety. Being able to organize and clean up Saturday mornings recharges me and gets me back to my normal peace so that I am ready to start the week. After cleaning is done, I again, relax with my daughter and spend some mommy and me time with her!"
An ideal Girls' Night:
"Most of my girlfriends live in different states, so I love catching up with them by scheduling Facetime calls where we can talk for hours!"

How recharging helped her business:
"Taking breaks is ESSENTIAL for my mental health. Burnout is a real thing. If you can't find time to really recharge then you will be pouring from an empty cup, which is not good for business. I try to take at least 3-4 days off every month where I do absolutely nothing for my business. No emails, calls, travel, nothing. This has helped me especially with being an entrepreneur. It is so easy to just go, go, go, but taking some time is really an asset when running a business."
