The Importance of Getting Away From It All

May 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

Do you feel that you can't get by without your cellphone or computer?

Does being available all of the time weigh on you?

Do you wish you could just leave it and go away on vacation?

Do you hesitate to take the time or spend the money to do so?

Know what? By NOT getting away, you may just be heading for chronic overload, sending your adrenals and mind into constant fiery action and overload, without giving your nervous system downtime to reboot and recharge from time to time.

By not allowing our systems downtime, we go into a perpetual situation of being "on", being too full, getting chronically tired and mentally overloaded, feeling kind of boggy and uninspired. It can also lead to chronic fatigue syndrome or adrenal burnout.

Because we live in such a turned on society, many of us haven't developed the habit of allowing ourselves time and space to balance and even to consider what suits us best, in terms of the tasks we perform. Some of us are simply on automatic and don't pay attention to what makes us happy and joyful.

Do you think about this? Do you review what is happening in your life and reevaluate?

We need to let ourselves just chill, to get away and to breathe different air, see different places, do things that are new and unfamiliar to get ourselves back into the stream of creativity and inspiration. Doing the same thing, day after day, does not facilitate this.

So even if you don't have money to get away on an expensive vacation, set a day aside and do something different, completely unrelated to work.

Go to the beach, find a stand of trees to sit under, take a walk in nature and just allow yourself to recharge and reboot.

I just did this very thing this past weekend. I got away from my routine for 3 glorious days, doing things that I don't usually do, spending time with people I met along the way and spent plenty of time in nature in some of the best spots in Israel. Now I feel renewed, optimistic and fresh. Whew, so good!

So find a way to get yourself out of your routine and try a new thing or two, to refresh your mind and soul.

Wishing you renewal and creativity,

Love and Blessings,
