What Does It Mean To Return To Your Happy Place?
First, let me begin by letting you in on a little secret. I am not always happy. WHAT??? Yes, I am not always happy! The reality is there are times when life sucks. I have down moments and down days. Bad shit, happens to me just like everyone else. The difference my friends is that I’ve groomed myself with daily practices and strategies not to stay in that state of doom and gloom, poor me, low energy, or whatever you want to call it.
You may recognize the title, as it is also the tag line to my travel company. The tag line truly embraces what we all need to do. It is what I do almost daily and definitely throughout the year. And you have to make these things a practice. For me, getting to my happy place encompasses 4 key components….Escape, Thrive, Revive, and Indulge.
To revive is to take time to fuel your mind, body, and soul. Feed your mind and rejuvenate your spirit.
To indulge is to try new things, taste what the world has to offer, and to treat yourself.
To thrive is to reach and maintain a level of health and well-being that provides you longevity in life.
To escape is more than merely traveling. To escape is to let go of your daily routines and disconnect.
