Where Do You Go to Get Away?
Many years ago, I started searching places to go that represent “Get-Aways” so that I could enjoy some time away from my normal day. These spots represent a way to stop work for a while and realize that life is more than just the work you do. It. helps you get in touch with yourself as a person. Perhaps you’ve tried some of these.
A GAME OF GOLF so that you can spend time with people you enjoy and see nature at its best. Golfers call golf courses “the best real estate in the world”.
A SPA DAY that enables you to go to a relaxing atmosphere and enjoy amenities such as aroma therapy, hot stones, and other niceties.
A WEEKEND CAMPING TRIP is also enjoyed by many as a way to experience nature and do things in a whole different way. I once went on a scouting trip with my son. One of my favorites parts was coffee made by the campfire. It tastes better that way.
WAVE RUNNING IN THE OCEAN to notice the endless view of the earth while experiencing nothing by you and the world.
READING A NON-WORK-RELATED BOOK at a local coffee shop and putting yourself in the world the author has created for you.
A DISNEY DAY (or any theme park) where you can ride rides and pretend to be a kid again.
AN ESCAPE ROOM where you and some friends can enjoy a pretend mystery and solve the puzzle and finally escape from the room.
A DATE NIGHT where you and a significant other can feel young again— For us it could be a sunset cruise, salt cave or couple’s massage.
