Vacations Aren't Frivolous, They're Investments in Our Well-Being
Everywhere I turn recently I come across people who schedule their annual vacations before they schedule any other personal or professional commitments.
These people prioritize their happiness, health and well-being before all else.
They know they need vacations to refuel themselves to be their best.
I have only very recently climbed aboard the “schedule your vacation first” bandwagon. The value of doing so became crystal clear to me this year.
I had been craving time at the beach for several months but took no action to make it happen. Then my daughter called me this spring to suggest we take a mother-daughter trip together. Of course!
After considering various destinations, we settled on Cape Cod, a place very special to my family and my favorite destination on the planet.
As soon as I crossed the bridge from mainland Massachusetts onto the Cape, I felt my whole body relax. It was like one long exhale.
By the end of our glorious week together – sun, ocean, laughter, great conversations, good meals, beautiful scenery – I felt renewed. Why did I wait so long?
I am currently planning and scheduling my two-week 2020 vacation!
Don’t wait until you’re exhausted and running on empty before you take a break. Schedule a get-away today.
Choose to be happy, healthy and productive.
It’s as simple as scheduling your vacation first.
Let me know how I can help.
