Christmas is that time of year where most of the world takes stock to celebrate, relax and take a breather just before the end of another year. For some, it’s a welcome time, for others, the extra time from the break of daily routines may actually pose to be an interesting challenge. We came up with 5 things to do over the break. Whatever you do, we hope you have a great time!
That’s was obvious! Never get round to booking that treatment you always wanted? Perhaps this is your chance! If not the whole nine yards, why not a facial or a massage? We need to pamper ourselves from time to time. It’s a good opportunity to slow things down and have your time managed by someone else for a while as you give in to the moment.
Catch Up With Friends
Unless you’re lucky enough to have a fellowship that will assemble together like, anytime, then you’ll need to plan ahead. Everyone seems to have a hectic schedule and to make sure everyone is free at the same time on the same day can sometimes be a challenge in itself. Figure out a place to be, set the time and get everyone’s confirmation early.
Expand Your Horizons
For some, the break is a great way to go somewhere and see the world. It doesn’t even have to be far, or even on another country. Take the time to choose a place you’ve never been to but want to see. It could be a nearby town/city/state etc. Just give yourself an opportunity to explore the world around you. We often miss subtle details, glossing them over as we go about our lives. If you have the chance, immerse yourself in a different culture, go somewhere with less/more people. Take a small adventure.
Be With Mother Nature
It’s nice to change environments from time to time. For city dwellers, the countryside is a great place for a quick getaway. Go camping or hiking. Get to know the world around you. Be close to mother nature. Get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Away from cars and machines and pollution. See the world in its natural beauty.
This might sound unusual, but perhaps some quiet “me” time could be interesting also. If you’re the type of person that needs “time-off”, this could be a great thing to do. Just switch off and give yourself some privacy and down time. Snuggle up in bed with a book. Go for a walk in the park. Have a well-deserved power nap. What ever you choose to do, make it time spent well and for yourself.
