Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We hope it was awesome and that you are excited for the week ahead, this is the thick of the holiday season after all. With the holidays often come vacations (!!), which is why today we wanted to talk about the importance of vacations.
Whether we are jetting off to a tropical island, heading up to a cabin in the woods, or having a staycation at home, taking a break from our everyday routine is so important for our well-being. We can get really caught up in our routines, even our weekend routines and while there is nothing wrong with that it can become rote and we can start to mindlessly march through our day-to-day. Vacations and staycations give us a change of scenery, change of pace and perhaps a change of perspective. They are a chance to re-charge our batteries and maybe even re-focus on our goals.
So, this holiday season, even if you just have 1 day off, take advantage of it! Do something that is outside of your normal routine! Maybe that involves swimming with dolphins or maybe that means waking up to no alarm. Just take some time to do something you enjoy, or try something new. We're planning to take some time to read books that have been on our list and try a new yoga class that we have been meaning to fit into our schedule!
We hope you have a wonderful holiday!
