Have you said recently, “I need a vacation”?
Are you longing for some rest and renewal?
I have looked into creating different forms of minivacations. Minivacations provide renewal when you need it most. They are little breaks in the chaos of life.
Here are three insights about minivacations.
- You need a variety of minivacations because there are different types of renewal.
Just as we choose various types of food to eat, choosing different types of minivacations can help us flourish in life. This process creates a more balanced and renewed you.
When I thought about what a vacation can do, I realized these benefits:
- Reinvigorate your spirit
- Get a chance to step back from the rules (“Yes, I will have a second dessert. Thank you!”)
- Take it easy
- Enjoy novelty—that is, new sights, smells, tastes, and sounds.
Creating novelty is important because your brain craves new experiences.
For example, I have a set route for taking a walk each day. At times, my sweetie says, “How about we go in that other direction?”
- Pause and discover what your soul needs at this moment.
What do you need?
At this moment, I could use a nap. A 20-minute nap can feel truly refreshing. 20 minutes spares you from waking up groggy if you awaken in the middle of a sleep cycle. (Sleep cycles tend to be 90 minutes long.)
Do you need to feel some kind of hope?
Some of us feel renewed when we see a film or video that features an inspirational story.
Do you feel better after you express yourself creatively?
Perhaps, you would enjoy a few minutes of drawing or painting.
Other creative forms include music, dance, and writing.
The idea is to express yourself. We’re not talking about taking on a new chore or “job.” You do not need to show anyone your creative work. It’s just for fun.
Even 15 minutes of doing something creative may give you a big rush-feeling of new energy.
- Ask the Goddess to reveal what forms of minivacation can soothe your mind, body, and spirit.
The Gods are here for us and love it when we show appreciation. They are always here when we need guidance. Here is a prayer for guidance…
