Based on my own experience this summer, I would like to recommend a 3-day “reset vacation” every year, where you take a short break from life and reset yourself.
First of all be alone if you can. If you really need it, bring alone your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse of course. But you should definitely be without the kids since the concept of “resetting” and “kids” totally mismatch.
Next , be close to nature. It doesn’t matter if you’re by the sea or at the mountains. The core concept is that you choose a quiet place close to nature, since nature helps you open up to yourself.
You should pack light as well. Only essential things…You definitely don’t need neither to struggle to carry your luggage nor to waste time selecting clothing on a “reset” vacation. Please don’t get tempted to bring books either. Yes, you really wanted to read that book and never found the time for it but this is a special vacation and you will find plenty of time to read books on other vacations. Read more
