As a motivational speaker on stress management, I talk a lot about taking yourself OUT of an environment that is causing you stress and going to some place, any place, that makes you go "Ahhhhhhh." And for me, it's a couple of places but maybe the best one is my backyard where the rule is "first one into the hammock wins." I can sip a cup of coffee, watch the fish jump in our little lake and be surrounded by happy doggies and chirping birdies.
And then I read a really intriguing blog post by Lisa Powell entitled, Living the Life of a Gypsy Dream – and it got me to thinking that maybe I needed to open up my horizons! If I can relax in my backyard, why can't I relax in Australia? Or Bali? Or Chile! Okay so maybe the travel is a little laborious – but what a HUGE payoff when you get to your destination! Go read her blog! I just bet it may whet your appetite for a little more adventure!
Bora Bora anyone?
