Why it’s important to get away from it all…

Most of us lead busy lives.


A lot of us commute for hours and when we get home, we still have work to catch up on. Our weekends are full and it’s often not until Sunday evening we might just get some time to ourselves.


The trouble with this lifestyle is that it’s a fast-track to burnout. It isn’t possible – something always gets the rough end and it’s usually ourselves.


So let’s take back control.


Sometimes, we have to just stop, remove ourselves from our everyday life and go somewhere where there’s no link to our responsibilities.Somewhere where there’s just ourselves and some free time – time that we decide how to fill.


It’s not laziness.


Spending time away from our screens, our to-do list and our mobiles is vital for physical and mental health.


Problems melt away.


Just having nothing to do but go for walks, breathe fresh air, and read a book for a few days is like a holiday for the soul as well as the body. Problems melt away for a day or so; in fact, some problems are actually solved by a bit of distance and mind-clearing.


Recharge your batteries.


This is recharging and it’s essential to our creativity, energy levels and even our immune systems, as well as our relationships.


If you really feel the need to gaze at the ocean waves rather than spreadsheets for a few days, then it could be just what the doctor ordered.
