Holidays and escaping from the normal routine of life brings a certain feeling and excitement to ones aura. We count down to a holiday. We visualize where we want to go, what we want to do and when we want to see. We will see new things and meet new people and experience something we may never have before. We feel hopeful and look forward to this experience in this journey of life. There is something about escaping from the norm that also makes us reflect more and gives us a sense of clarity, positive energy and emotional growth. There is something about being away from your usual life that can change our perspective, thinking and way of being. Even if just for a mere moment. A change in environment can do wonders for the soul and for the mind. It can allow you to tap into a part of yourself that you probably don’t do in your usual home and work life. When you are away. You are not working or cooking or adhering to life’s demands. You may be by the beach, skiing, mountain climbing or on a banana lounge sipping Mai Tai’s at a resort. You are doing things you don’t normally do everyday, hence why your mind is at ease, there is no rush for time and you can relax and just be.
This can open yourself up to an amazing feeling of wellness, calm and openness. It allows you time to slow down and to appreciate more of what life has to offer. You may even make decisions otherwise rushed back home. Holidays are important for various reasons. We re charge, re connect and live. There is a time to work and a time to play. What is life without some fun. It is there for us to live and enjoy. Make sure you take the breaks you deserve. Try and do something you have never done or seen before. It is important to stop and smell the roses. More often than not. A change of scenery can do wonders and could be the best thing for you mentally, spiritually and physically.
Take a holiday. Even a weekend away. Holidays are a health benefit. More for the soul than anything else. Make memories, make fun and live.
