Most of the times you do your work, as you enjoy it. Of course, the money you get helps you to pay your bills and to secure your future. But the driving force or passion behind your hard-work needs refuelling once in awhile. So, when you start losing your love and passion for what you live for, and start feeling like a hamster on wheel, believe me, it's time to take a step back, take a deep breath, pack your bags and go for a short road trip or a simple getaway to pacify your tensed and frustrated mind and soul.
It doesn't have to be anything big and fancy, but few days away from the norms and mundane lifestyle with your cuddly pet, or with some other people whom you trust can gift you a special kind of cleansing of your head and calmness of your soul, especially when you are going through a rough patch in your life.
So here we are listing a bunch of excuses which will convince a workaholic like you to go out for weekend or to take short vacation:
To Reward Us:
So, you work 12-14 hours a day, even on weekends. And have earned like a ton of money, so yeah it's the time to take a chunk out of that resource and invest it in your road trip. so that you can reward yourself with a beautiful, serene and close to nature getaway, where you can reconnect with your soul and in the process can find your lost love for your work.
To Get a Brand New Perspective:
Perspectives vary and depend on people and situation. To gift yourself some new perspectives in an entirely new and fresh ambiance, all you need is to make a slight change in your routine life. This will give you the scope to look at things from a different angle and you will probably end up looking with a brand new perspective.
In our daily life, we repeat a cycle of daily chores every day, which leave no room for thinking about things differently. Even if you feel contained in your work life, getting away from work for few days will give you the chance to think about certain things little differently.
This could be exactly what you need to get a brilliant business idea, for which you have been brainstorming for so many days.
Whatever small it is, the experience outside your routine-life will show you there is more to life than just obeying those sticky notes and to-do lists.
Relax and recharge:
Taking a short trip or a mini vacation can emotionally rejuvenate you so that you can finish that half done file on your work table more accurately.
Day to day routine life can drain you, physically and emotionally, and in this process can reduce your working capability. So, our body and soul both need withdrawal from this mundane life, so that you can return to work more efficiently than ever.
A short trip will always make you understand that a pinch of time taken off your routine, will actually motivate you to get your work done more precisely , as it will clear your head and will refresh your mind.
So, take the time to relax and put some gap between routine and me-time. If you fail to do so, soon it will siphon away your energy and will reduce your working capability.
If you are in a creative field of work, a writer, photographer, or a scriptwriter, journalist these short trips will enrich you with brand new information.
Getting more information and discovering new challenges are two most important reasons to get away this weekend. We don't actually like being out of our comfort zone, but we can't expect to grow as a person unless we go out from our comfort zone and push past our reservation.
They say travelling is a part of education, and it can be challenging at times, with unfamiliar places, people, food, and unknown easily scares us, but at the same time, it's a good teacher.
By dealing with the unknown situation in an unknown place you can see yourself growing as a person, and who knows these experiences might help you out with some unknown and difficult situation at your workplace.
So, shut your computer, close that file and plan a road trip, or backpack to a nearby place this weekend.
