Vacation time. We look forward to this precious time away from our daily routine of work and home. But sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves to get ready for vacation, we can’t fully enjoy that time away.
Here are a few tips for preparing for your time away from work.
Plan B. The backup to what you really want to do or accomplish. Instead of climbing a mountain, I sat for hours looking at a lovely view of mountains and visiting with family. I climbed an 8,000 ton glacial erratic, walked along the Sandy River, and saw an amazing sunset. Sometimes Plan B, turns out to the be perfect plan.
During life’s tough times, instead of pulling away and thinking no one cares or needs to be burdened by your challenges, reach out to accept a hand in support.
Likewise, when a friend is going through tough times, be attentive, kind, and compassionate. Your job is not to fix their situation, but to witness, listen to, and support them. You can do this without feeling pulled down or sucked into their “drama,” by using a simple energy clearing technique, I share in this episode.
When life is crazy busy and you are doing, doing, doing… that is the time to slow down. Take a look at the world around you. You may need to “unlearn” what you’ve been told about the way to success, but the transformation is powerful if you allow it to happen.
