How receptive are we to taking care of ourselves? Do we assume that we are machine-line and can operate for extended periods, with no or minimal breaks? Are we cognizant that we are rather humans and therefore, like machines, require a ‘tune up’, maintenance or a break from time to time.
My family and I love to travel, because it not only provides us the opportunity to explore new lands/cultures, but also because it gives us some time off. I feel that this time away from our normal lives is key to sustaining healthy and happy lives. Time off gives us the opportunity to unwind, restore our energy, so that we may better proceed forward.
