When we go away on vacation we often allow ourselves to not only be off from work, but also from how we eat, exercises, sleep and indulge. We tend do to more of these things, giving ourselves the excuse that we’ve earned a few days or more of gluttony as a reward for how hard we work. What tends to happen though is that we return feeling worse about ourselves instead of refreshed. Ironically we often use our vacations to do less, ignoring that with leisure comes more time to do our bodies and minds wrong. We neglect what we truly desire most – to have the freedom to do more of what we love. A break from our daily grind is an opportunity to put our efforts towards the things that make us better humans. And yes, that can co-exist with whatever and wherever we choose to find leisure, pleasure and escape.
