Take a Mental Vacation


We’re over halfway through the summer. If you didn’t have time to take a relocation vacation, make sure you at least take time for yourself by disconnecting. Follow the tips below.

3 Ways to Take a Mental Vacation

  1. Start your morning reading a book or a magazine - If only for 15 minutes while you have your cup of coffee. So many of us jump right into work thoughts the second we wake up. Escaping into some fiction for a few quiet minutes in the morning will do wonders for you throughout the day.

  2. Hit the mute button - Find a spot where you don't hear the noise you can not control. So often this is the sound of cars and trucks speeding down our roadways. Sitting in a park listening to footsteps, church bells, bicycles, trees swaying, or rain splashing on the sidewalk can be most refreshing.

  3. Turn off the hand held devices -Everything is on the phone - work emails, Twitter, Facebook, family, friends so we constantly check it. Twice a day set your phone down on your desk and take a 10 minute walk. When you get back you will feel refreshed. Also, never take your phone to bed, leave it in the kitchen.
