My last post was on having a bad day and how to bounce back. Naturally, lots of different methods are available to every individual, but after the events of this past bad week, I felt a crying need to get away from it all. Given the opportunity, I packed my bags and went to a friend’s house for the weekend. On the surface, this approach may seem like an attempt to run away, but I focused on the need for a mental vacation. Now that I’m back, nothing magically fixed itself, but my problems somehow seem in better focus, and I have far more energy to tackle them.
Michele and I would like to hear about what you enjoy on your mental vacations? I bet lots of you would like to blow the whistle, call “time out” and read a great book!
