Carey reflects on a weekend away in BC's Penticton and Naramata Bench, aptly named from cliffs alongside Okanagan Lake that house twenty-four award-winning wineries.
Those who follow me know I'm rarely home on weekends.
Travel and escape are necessities in my life even though it would be phenomenal to catch up and get organized in between busy work weeks. I'd rather spend a weekend away in our beautiful Canada, spend a few days in Europe, or find something new and exciting somewhere, anywhere.
When you work hard, the benefits of work life balance become evident as the years go by. It becomes easy to get stuck in life’s rhythm. I've learned to disrupt that rhythm. And by doing so I'm left feeling inspired, refreshed, and open to new ideas.
Some dread Monday’s.
Not me. I recharge and enter the work week energetic and brimming with new thoughts and perspective. The alternative would be mental burnout and fatigue.
If you’re feeling exhausted or that life is getting a bit stale, this weekend may be the perfect time to escape. Doing so doesn’t require a weekend away. It requires change. Try changing up your routine, like experimenting with a new coffee shop or a short day trip to a neighbouring town for a change of scenery.
