It’s easy to fall in the trap of the 9-5 routine where everything becomes too fast paced, stressful, and busy. The city can get lonely at times and absent of inspiration. We find ourselves daydreaming of travelling abroad to break free, find inspiration, and re-energize. But it’s easier to dream of Parisian lights or the Caribbean heat than to find vacation time from work or school.
Sometimes, we owe it to ourselves to take a break from the routine, in order to re-focus the energy back to our well-being. Finding inspiration and finding “me” time do not need to be anywhere far. It doesn’t have to wait until you have a full week off. It certainly does not need to cost a flight ticket. Take an hour road trip away from the city and find peace with nature. Turn off your phone once you find your way to the conservation park. Take a walk to clear the mind. Get close to the water for reflection. Instantly, you are transported to a place where you are distant from distractions. Embrace the silence. And you will find peace.
