Take a Vacation. Not a Change of Scenery, a Vacation.
Posted Aug 20 2010 8:34am
I’m working on my Happiness Project, and you could have one, too ! Everyone’s project will look different, but it’s the rare person who can’t benefit. Join in -- no need to catch up, just jump in right now. Each Friday’s post will help you think about your own happiness project.
I'm leaving for vacation with my family today. I thought about trying to post here throughout next week -- I've often posted during a vacation -- but I decided, no. Given the technology these days, it’s tempting to have a change of scenery and call it a vacation. But a vacation really means taking a break from work.
Now, I won't completely take a break from work. My laptop is my beloved security blanket, and I would never leave it behind, and whenever I have my laptop, I usually end up writing something or other. I keep my one-sentence journal , I take notes constantly, I have to write down ideas or I forget them. But for me, that kind of work is actually play -- I'll do it if I feel like it, or not, if I don't.
