Where do you go to get away? Is getting away something you keep promising yourself that you will do but keep delaying. It just may be that you believe physical relocation and added expense are required. Travel is only one way.
It is easily possible and healthy to get away several times a day. There are several ways to accomplish it. Most require very little time and no expense.
1) Turn off your cell phone and put it out of reach. Just breathe and daydream.
2) Skip a meeting that does not really require your attendance. Instead, take a walk and listen to the birds of spring.
3) Put on your sweat pants, make a peanut butter sandwich and watch an episode of Mayberry.
Have you ever heard anyone say that they “really need to get away?” Too many seem to turn to anti-depressants, sleeping pills and alcohol. That is not really getting away.
For me, writing these comments while listening to classic symphonic music takes me away. Getting away is a health-improving frame of mind. Try it!
