The Great Reset

Travel. Do you love it? I do and am thankful that I have the opportunity to travel from time to time.

Last month, I traveled to a conference in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. And I have to say, there is something healing about being surrounded by lush, green trees and rolling hills.

When you're planning a retreat, no matter if it's for a weekend or a month, here's a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Tell the people who talk to you frequently that you are planning to unplug. Of course you can check your phone as often as you want, but limiting your screen time to a few moments a day is really helpful in allowing the recharge to take place.

  2. Make a list of things you'd like to accomplish while you're away. Now, don't let this one scare you - rest can be the only thing on this list if that's what you need. Finishing your favorite Netflix series can be on the list. Sightseeing, trying new restaurants, or just taking in the views.. it can be whatever you need it to be, but having a list is helpful so you don't waste your days away doing things that don't recharge you.

  3. Take it all in. Breathe in the moments of calm and peace. Stay grateful for the chance to travel and step away.

Getting away from your normal routine is a powerful way to recharge and eliminate the daily distractions of life. Stepping away from normal life gives me time to write, plan and refresh my goals. If you can, plan a small trip. Get away and re-set. Whether it’s the beach or the mountains or the lake, just do it. It will be time well spent.
