Good Afternoon dear readers, hope your Friday is going well. I’m currently checking out the Signature Starbucks at One Utama and I have to say that I am impressed. Looks good, feels good and my Soy Café Mocha tastes good. I’m think I’m going to make it a habit to come here once a week.
Anyway, today is Friday which means the weekend is going to start soon, i’m on a little little vacation, staying overnight at a hotel, (I’ll review it on Monday) and just engaging my self in renewal. And that’s what today’s topic is about Renewal.
When was the last time you took some time off for yourself. To just get away to renew, recharge and relax, to strip away try noise. this is as important as anything else in your life. We aren’t meant to work all the time and live life in an office. Try and make a habit of taking mini-vacations, they don’t have to be grand or anything like that. They just have to be able to get you away and help you renew your mind and soul. Whether it’s staying at a nice hotel overnight, or taking a weekend trip out of state or hike. It’d got to be something for you, not anyone else, something that appeals to you. Spend some time in nature, pamper yourself to a day spa or hideaway in your favourite quiet cafe and spend 3 hours just to read that book you’ve been wanting to or out on the headphones and listen to seem soothing tunes for an hour or two (if you can try out the Bose QC15) or just go out into nature and be with yourself in its serene, calm & quiet environment and do some thinking.
Do not underestimate the power of renewal, it is not a waste of time. In order for us to reform at our best we have to feel our best, simple as that. it is essential in Getting to Greatness without burning out.
So try and set a few hours every weekend to renew and have some relaxing ‘Me’ time and on top of that try to get away one weekend a month (road trip, stay at a hotel, out-of-state, full fledged day spa). Don’t take my word for it, try it our and see for yourself.
On a side note, I know some may think of sleeping the weekend away as Renewal, but I really wouldn’t recommend that, go ahead and sleep in, but don’t spend more than 9 hours in bed because after that you’re body is going to get into a last and lethargic mood and your renewal time would have been wasted. this is not just a time for physical renewal, but also for your mind and soul. Go ahead and sleep-in, but don’t over do it, go out more living in your life and get some nourishing renewal.
