Is it that time again?

So here we are, 3 months in

So here we are, 3 months to the day of when we were instructed to "shelter at home". I don't know about you, but I'm ready to get out in the world, see my peeps, hug my family, and do the things that require less than 6 feet from other humans. But as reality sets in, that's just not going to happen quite yet. Now, that doesn't mean that we can't (or shouldn't) get creative about what we can do to get some down time.

Beach Bound!

If truth be told, I'm headed to the beach this week. It just so happens that the friends that we have been quarantining with right from the start have invited us to their beach house for a few days. A different scenery, a different place for zoom calls, and a much-needed break from the monotony of my home. And don't get me wrong, I adore my home. I'm just needing a change, and if it comes in the form of a different space to shelter in, I'm in. And let's be real - I don't ever go 3 months without taking some time for me, so why am I working 24/7 just because I'm being forced to stay at home? It's not healthy, it's not productive, and it sure ain't fun!

What are you going to do for a reset?

So what can you do to conjure up some change and leave the walls of your home behind? Why not go on a day hike with the family? Google knows what hikes are within an hour or two from your home. Take the day, get the fresh air, and soak up mother nature - it will do more for you than you can imagine. How about berry picking? Another great day event to keep you out of the house, distanced from others, and in the beauty of the outdoors. Live near a beach or a park? May a day trip out of it and while keeping the distance, enjoy your family from a different view.

It's Time To Take Care Of You!

Here's the deal. Because life as we know it has changed for the foreseeable future, it's imperative that we change how we get the down time needed to be productive when we are working. Just because we can't travel like we had been, doesn't mean we can't take a day or two off to just chill, get off the computer, get away from the zoom, and play with those you live with. Now, more than ever, is the time to get those sleepy creative juices flowing so that you can appreciate what you do have amongst what is so evidently lacking. Remember, gratitude is your friend during these times of change and unpredictability. And when you get away from the everyday life that has become you, you are much more able to see clearly all the things to be grateful for. 

Here's what to consider when planning a "get away":

  • Do I have the time to take some time off?
  • Is this the right time to take some time off?
  • Who do you need to clear it with?
  • Are you going solo, or taking the fam with you?
  • How many days do you need for a productive reset?
  • What can you do without even going far to get the reset you need?

So, whether it's vacay or staycay - you got this! Enjoy!
