One Day Recharge

Submitted by on Sunday, 10 April 2011No Comment

Often times people will complain about being stressed out at work, or tired of the same daily activities. They want to just walk away from everything and be done with it forever. Guess what? You and I both know that isn’t going to happen. The human mind can be an interesting topic of discussion. It holds and stores information, some that is repetitive and we get into a groove of doing things the way they are while complaining about it.

Now to break free from the daily and stressful tasks a one day vacation can be helpful to break you recharge your energy and give your body and mind a break. We spoke to several individuals all who shared the following pointers to make the best of your recharging journey.

1. You are on vacation, there is no need to repeat the same activities such as washing dishes, or cleaning the sink. You would be surprised as to how many people still do this. Breaking free from that reptition will allocate time for other fun activities while on vacation.

2. Leave work at home. If one of your requirements is to give yourself a mental break from work, then leave your blackberries, laptops, cell phones etc at home so you can avoid getting bogged down while on vacation. Make it clear to your employer that you will not have access to company information and set that expectation.

3. There are things that we always want to do but don’t have time when at home. This can be something as simple as reading a newspaper in the sun, playing scrabble with your family or just walking around the city enjoying the fresh air.

Mental burnout is one of your worst enemies at work or home. While you might be trying to be productive in the end you are leading toward the opposite of just that. The one day rechargers are meant for weekend activities or for those who might not have the luxury of taking long and frequent vacation. You work hard in life, its time you repay yourself. This will help you stay energized, productive and most importantly positive!
