Life is so darn chaotic and crazy isn’t it?? How on earth are we all surviving this madness? I’m pretty sure we’re all meant to be living a MUCH slower pace of life? It certainly isn’t doing our stress levels or mental health any good rushing around like we do, let alone our physical health.
I’m reminded just how life is meant to be lived every time I get away for a night, or a weekend, in the country…
Here life seems to be lived at a reasonable pace. No traffic or taxi’s. No back-to-back meetings or chock-a-block calendars. Just quiet walks in the fresh air, slow meals, cups of tea. Time to read, smell the roses, watch the sunset.
Of course not everyone can opt out of city life and escape to the country BUT the good news is that everyone can get away from it all by planning a night or a weekend away occasionally.
A night away is a snooze button in our busy lives.
A weekend away is a reset button!
We try to get away for a few days every few months. An escape to the country is always lovely but it’s equally fun to spend a night in another part of the city – a break in routine is what it’s about!
It’s so important to take a break, leave your usual 9-5 or weekend routine and slooooow things down.
Spending quality time together as a couple or just hanging with our kids with no plans or agenda, doing fun things, enjoying good food and having conversations that otherwise never happen.
A getaway is so good for our marriages and family relationships. Nothing bonds people together like traveling together and spending uninterrupted time enjoying each other’s company!
Equally a little bit of solo time is also a treat, especially for us moms! It’s so important to remember to prioritize our mental health and individual identity and sometimes do something that’s just for us!
