You absolutely need ways to get away from it all when life becomes overwhelming. There comes a point when you know you need to take a break and regroup and gather yourself. It’s so easy to get caught up in the hectic pace of go go go, when you’re trying to get ahead. It’s always good to slow down, take a breath, and do things differently. These are my favorite ways to get away from it all:
1. Get Away from the Urban Environment and Spend Time in Nature
There’s pretty must nothing more healing than spending time in the sun, or even in a fresh wind. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in an urban setting, near the sea or mountains or forest: wherever you are, find some place to be in nature. Smell the flowers and learn their names! Ditto for the stars – on a warm night with clear skies, see how many you can identify, or just gaze at them and wonder at the wonderland we live in.
