After a year of depositions, contracts, and client calls, August is an ideal time for a getaway to de-stress. The catch is, many of us don’t quite know how to relax when finally granted a rare respite from our hectic schedules.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a how-to for those in need of some quality relaxation.
Unplug and switch off. You may consider your cell-phone an additional limb you can’t do without normally, but quality down-time is difficult to achieve without cutting yourself off a little. Certainly, utilize modern technology for navigating around your vacation resort and use your currency exchange app to see if you’d be scoring a deal on that decades old bottle of brandy but, by and large, you want to limit time spent tapping on your touchscreen.
Call a halt to military planning. It’s understandable you want to make the most of your free time but drafting to-the-hour itineraries is ultimately going to breed stress rather than serenity. Make vague plans and stay flexible – you aren’t attending NY continuing legal education courses now.
Catch some ZzzZz’s. The last thing you want from a vacation is to return home more exhausted than when you departed. Don’t hesitate to hit snooze on your morning alarm clock!
Bon voyage from all at the leading New York continuing legal education providers!
