It’s funny, but as much as I believe in the importance of unwinding and taking time for yourself, I actually rarely do. A day here and there, but mostly not so much! I suppose we don’t always practice what we preach, and in my line of work things tend to come up last minute which makes vacations something of a luxury, difficult to schedule and take, even if I wanted to.
But this year the stars aligned just right, and for the first time in 7 years, I managed to carve out an entire week to spend with my family ( who are in town visiting me for my birthday ) and I must say, I’ve definitely been missing out! Though a week doesn’t seem like a very long time, somehow at the end of it, I feel more inspired, more together and ready for new challenges, more relaxed, recharged and ready for whatever tomorrow may bring! It’s really amazing what a week of lazy beach days, long dinners, late nights binge-watching Netflix can do for you! Currently contemplating/aiming for another week around Holiday season, but until then, I aim to find more ways to relax and unwind but also, allow myself to be lazy every once in a while.
Things that seemed to work rather well in the past for me were staycations ( mini vacation is better than nothing at all ), spa days at home ( a perfect excuse to get all your girls together and try every beauty product imaginable ) and super lazy days at home ( comfy pjs, take out and Netflix ), but what about you guys, how do you unwind?
