So I have been rather MIA for the last couple weeks and that’s because last week I was lucky enough to go on holiday to the Maldives. I decided while I was there that it would be a good idea to kind of switch off from the rest of the world and from life, to have a proper break. And that’s exactly what it was in the end, the holiday I so desperately needed without fully realizing it.
At the beach, I am able to get a breather from everything and suddenly all stress, sadness, anger, whatever it may be, disappears. I think it’s the sun and the warmth but suddenly I just don’t care and wow is that a liberating feeling to have. No one could dampen my mood and I was able to fully recharge my batteries. Thus like it says above, the beach for me provides tranquility, rest and relaxation, and I was lucky enough to be able to go to such a beautiful place to get that R&R.
However, everyone will have their version of the beach, as each person gets relaxation, rest and tranquility in different places. It could be in the wilderness, in a cosmopolitan city or in the countryside. Thus what is important is to figure out where that place is for you and then take yourself there once in a while. It’s so critical for everyone to have a break from time to time, otherwise you will just be heading towards a burnout.
And if you can’t manage to get away on a real holiday for whatever reason, find a place close by where you can go even just for the weekend. Checking out mentally and physically will help re-energize you and set you up for what life has in store for you in the coming period. And trust me, it will help to see things a little more clearly as well.
