The idea of vacation is pretty sweet, isn t it? The
lazy hours of doing nothing on the beach, the sunset
strolls, novels that read smooth as martinis. Reams
of free time. Relaxation.
Now comes the big reality buzzer. All too often,
vacations don t live up to the dream. In fact, they
become a negative stress trigger because you didn t
have the great time you expected and maybe even
head back to work more depleted than when you
This ironic and unfortunate turn of events comes
from a fundamental misunderstanding of what it
means to relax. Our cultural ideas around vacation
are all about relaxation as the opposite of work; as
in, literally doing nothing. Coupled with that ideal
is an expectation that you ll be perfectly relaxed from
the word go---that a chaise lounge has a magical
ability to transform you.
Relaxation and vacation aren t merely the opposite
of work. They are engaging, vital parts of your life
that deserve happy thought and careful attention. If
you think of vacation as a big blank, that s what
you ll get. And likely you ll end up with a dollop of
negative stress on top.
The key is to incorporate relaxation into your life
now. As those two weeks of vacation approach, you ll
have a much clearer sense of how to structure your
time to do the things that truly relax and replenish
you. And if that includes some poolside lounging,
lounge on! The point is to practise relaxation that
feels great to you so that when vacation comes, you re
ready for it.
Here are three ways to get in relaxation shape right
Calm your body. Our bodies hold onto our stress
long after we think the storms have passed, and it
can be difficult to practise structured relaxation if
old stress is knotting your very muscle fibres. A good
sweat-inducing workout, a great massage, or a calming
yoga class are all ways to help your body loosen up.
With a more relaxed body, you may also jump start
your physical senses---how your body feels, how the
light looks in the morning, how interestingly bitter
coffee is. This awareness can help clue you into to
what rejuvenating relaxation feels like for you.
Give your days an ebb and flow. If you re in
constant cram mode, you are going to burn out long
before you figure out what relaxes you. You need to
build pleasurable, non-work activities into your regular
schedule. They needn t be complicated, but they do
need to hold meaning. Try long walks three times
a week and smartphone-free meals with family,
friends, colleagues and clients. Joining a running
club, spending half hour every night watering and
weeding your garden or some other relaxing chore,
are options to consider.
Surprise yourself. Part of what makes vacation
fun is doing something you don t normally do (such
as sleep past 6 am). But it also may mean doing
something on a whim, just because. Maybe instead
of watching other people zip around on jet skis this
time, you re going to get up off your beach chair and
rent one yourself. Why not? Take advantage of the
longer days, the better weather, and the fun things
that are happening around you. Doing something
you didn t expect---and enjoying it---is what will make
your vacation fun and memorable. (Huffington Post)
