Ahh, Vacation!

Published by at 8:28 AM under Miscellaneous Musings

Sometimes we forget to take time. Time for ourselves. It’s so easy to get caught up in our daily routine, rushing from work to home to miscellaneous activities that crowd our days.

So yes, I just took some time. Being a workaholic, it was a great exercise in “doing nothing”. So often I go on vacation and rush from one activity to another. So I spent my time reading, watching the storms come across Lake Champlain (never been to Vermont before), visiting with family and friends, fishing and walking. No computer – now that was a shock. Well to be honest, I did check email on my BlackBerry.

Anyway, the point of all this is that I found it refreshing and I have a sense of both physical and mental renewal. I’m excited to get back to work. I feel more creative and have a better sense of well-being. My stress level is way down. It’s amazing what a little rest and relaxation can do for you.

When was the last time you did something just for you? Maybe you don’t have a vacation coming up but what about taking an afternoon to sit in the sun, read a good book, take a long bath or go to the park. Do something just for you, not for your kids or spouse. Just unwind. Daydream. We need more moments in our lives to replenish.

Why not take “time” for you today? You may be surprised by what a change of pace can do for you, I know I was.
