Vacations Can Be Overwhelming Until Now

Busy people have an agenda with multiple priorities that can sometimes conflict. One of those times is when taking vacations

Taking vacation is a priority! It gives us time to restore our body, mind and spirit. It makes space for creativity and connection to surface in our lives. Most of all, it allows us to disconnect from work.

The days before leaving on vacation, our to-do list becomes longer and the stress to disse stress increases. We try to do everything before leaving, triple check that we didn’t forget anything, and carry the work mode for a few days so our first days returning from vacation are not as busy as we foresee. We work within the first few days and the last day of vacation. Basically, our vacation time is shorten by our own actions.
