Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.
Leonardo Da Vinci
Soon we’ll be taking Da Vinci’s advice and taking a much needed relaxation break. Physically and mentally, I am more than ready. We’re in our final prep for a back-packing trip to Yosemite. I can’t wait to unplug from the world and get back to nature. Blue skies, mountains, trees, and a lot of peace and quiet. No RV, campsite or showers, just us and our backpacks and tents – can’t wait!
I think we’re all at that point where we just need to re-charge our batteries. It’s something so many of us neglect to make time for, it seems we’re all leading busier and busier lives and we’re not making any more (or any) time for relaxation. I know there were points in my life where I would feel guilty if I wasn’t making use of every single second. What I learned is that all it did was cause burn-out. I’m looking forward to coming back refreshed.
How do you relax? Do you schedule daily, weekly or monthly time on your calendar?by
