The Importance Of Holidays

Hello Readers,

Every person needs a break, some time out, even if it’s just one, beautiful, precious day.  Jobs, family, employers and friends can exist one day without us, because think about it, if you were not around, they would have to find a way of managing, wouldn’t they?  Each person deserves a day away where no problems are confronted and no solutions are searched for.    Sometimes we need to withdraw from the pressures and continual stresses of living that refuse to withdraw from us.  It’s when we feel trapped and caged in that we tend to become ‘stir crazy’.  So be kind to yourself as well as others and give yourself a break.

It can be so exciting going off on a journey that we have no idea how things will turn out, but keep fingers crossed and hope for the best.  Oddly, the billowing fumes of an airport, motorway or train station do not smell like suffocating effluence.  It smells like the beginning of a brand new adventure reminding us that we are about to be transported to another land.  People would be happier and healthier if they took more time off and spent it either with their friends and family or just sitting quietly somewhere with a book because reading will also transport you to another place, elsewhere, anywhere but where you currently are.

People are nearly always in such an enormous rush, busting a gut to get somewhere fast, working to a gruelling timetable, not even considering making little or no time for themselves to even sit and enjoy a sandwich and read the newspaper with a nice hot cup of tea or coffee.  It’s no time for this and no time for that and then they wonder why they always feel so utterly spent, wasted and exhausted.  It’s not just our physical bodies that need a change of scenery, it’s our mental states and our emotions that need time to heal and rejuvenate from the madness of life.  Without adequate rest we are not capable of making good decisions or viewing a situation from another perspective because we are too exhausted and too close to the problem.  It’s a case of ‘wood and trees’, can’t see for looking.

I have heard people proudly announce that they never ever go on holiday.  In fact, holidays are way down their list of priorities, and so, gradually, as a result, their vision of life becomes limited and narrow because they have no idea what exists beyond their four walls and the garden gate. They forget there is a world out there.  They stick to their same routine year in and year out without ever experiencing anything different.  They will happily spend their money on bottles of wine, lottery tickets, bingo, having their beauty treatments and hair done, which is all very well, but they deprive their mind body and spirit of taking a much deserved rest and still expect to keep functioning on all cylinders as per usual. This may be ok for so long, but not forever.  We are humans, not machines or robots.  If we don’t have our cars serviced and cared for properly, eventually, they will begin to show signs of wear and tear and going wrong.  Holidays make us turn into different people.  You are sleeping somewhere unfamiliar, chatting away with people you have never met before and probably never will again and for the few days you are living in a very different world to the one of mundane, every day, normality.

In matters of healing the body and mind, a holiday is pure genius because nothing works better than putting a healthy distance between you and your problems. To reach the goals of your life you need discipline, some good luck and you also need something just as important as those two, holidays.

Holiday time is something we all accrue, but only the wisest of us recognise its importance.  The best way not to die with ‘holiday time not yet taken’ is to stop worrying about what you should have done, would have done and was going to do, but still haven’t.

Until Next Week,

Love and Light,
