I love taking time off in the fall. Seeing the leaves change. Getting in some colder weather.Â The best part is just having some time off. Vacations are important. Oh so important.
Not only does a vacation allow you to explore new adventures, but it allows you the time to rejunenate. To be together as a family.
Vacations might start taking a backseat to the family budget due to the woes of the economy, but be sure to keep in mind that taking time off is important. You don’t have to spend money to have a good time. Use your local resources to find free activities or to just be outside during this time of year — before winter brings people back inside.
If you’ve alreayd taken all of your vacation time this year or can’t afford to take time off, but still need that mental break consider doing something different for your next weekend. Don’t answer email or the phone, don’t turn on the TV. Go for a walk, a hike, read a book, go to a museum. Do something you don’t normally do. Most important, just relax and unwind.
