Are you stressed out? Is everyone getting on your nerves? Don’t want to get up and go to work in the morning?
Take a vacation! Don’t worry about packing your bags or saving up money or looking for flights or even finding some girlfriends to go with. Just call out of work.
So you may be thinking to yourself, where am I going then? You are going to take a vacation to nowhere. Take a vacation and go nowhere! Remind yourself of what makes you happy and what you enjoy doing. Take the time to eat at your favourite restaurants or go to the museum or catch a show/performance. Do all the things that you enjoy doing. Don't allow the stress and thoughts of your every day consume you.
I was recently feeling overwhelmed by LIFE. So I took a week off from work and lived for me. I took day trips into the city, photographed everyday, started new projects, and met with friends. I did all the things that I wanted to do, that I enjoyed.
Have you noticed the pattern? "I" is the keyword. It's all about you on this vacation to nowhere. Sometimes you need these to pull yourself away from the stresses of reality. You need these to help center yourself so you can put your best effort forward when it comes to your 9 to 5 or any other activity you do throughout your week.
Give it a try and see how it works for you. Also try journaling during your vacation time. If all goes well, dedicate a couple weeks a year to have a vacations to nowhere.
