Are you the type of person who takes days off from work to rest, but come back looking even more tired because you never rested? Well, this should change. You need to spend some quality time with only yourself, just as much as you make time for others. If you are reading this article, the next time you are on leave, it will definitely be different because listed below are some ideas you could borrow to make your days off worth it.
• It is all about one person-you!
Yes, it is your turn to relax! Whether you are planning on travelling or going for a retreat, do not carry company-even your spouse. You somehow find all the attention goes to him/her, when it should be all about you. It might be scary and you may be lonely at first, but this is the only chance you are free of your duties either at home or work. Take time to get rid of all the negativity in your life and by the time you are back; it will feel like you just got back from the Bahamas!
• Buy something that is of worth
The most common items people shop for are clothes, shoes, gadgets etc. Why not shop for a cause this time for a change? Majority of you have all these material things which are quite costly, but you never do anything to help the needy people in your society. It might be an awkward-looking painting or a wrist band from a charity event, but at the end of the day your proceeds will go to someone who needs it more than you do. What better feeling to help out by doing the simplest things!
• Something crazy, just this once?
The best way to know if someone enjoyed their holiday from work is when you find them gazing in the air with a big smile on their face. “That was time well spent!” they say. What makes your day is usually when you did something out of the blue. There are so many people who never get to do all the craziness that life offers, just because they do not have that free time. You only live once and life is all about taking chances. Sports like sky diving, flying a parachute and raft racing are some ideas that you probably just watch on TV and always wonder how it feels to do them. Well, this is your chance to try them out. Do not forget to take pictures – even your boss will get jealous!
