Vacations, Long Weekends, or Holidays
We have to remember that we all have to take time to recharge our batteries. Let’s get rid of the stigma surrounding taking time for yourself. Although this might sound counter intuitive sometimes you can be more successful if you take a break and nurture the relationships in your life.
Talk to your spouse if they are interested in listening about your day. Talk for 5-10 minutes and then drop it. This may prove to be therapeutic because you have gotten any residual frustration out before it manifested itself into an argument. We interact with people every day, if you talked someone having a bad day, you do not need to bring that negative energy home.
You live once make sure it is how you want to live your life, no regrets.
I have been fortunate to be able to travel a bit and I have made memories that I wouldn’t trade. Take time and make those memories, you and your families deserve them.
