A holiday is life’s way of stepping in to stop you from working yourself ill. Just as, on a daily basis, you have to stop to eat and sleep, at some point you need to take days or weeks out to gather yourself. Everyday life can be tiring. Sometimes just a few days at home can feel like bliss. Climbing off the hamster wheel and taking a few deep breaths means that, when you do get back to work, your batteries are recharged.
The world is full of exciting potential locations where you can spend a week or two. You can often find hidden gems looking for deals in less well-known airports. For example, everyone knows JFK Airport for New York, but what about its letter known cousin? In recent years the number of destinations and passengers going through Newark Airport has increased. Along with its neighboring NY/NJ area airports, Newark’s position as an outward hub has just grown and grown. So why not take advantage and see some more of the world?
Where Do You Want To Go?
The number of destinations to which you can fly from Newark has grown almost exponentially over the years. There are plenty of flights within the USA, and a lot of things to see wherever you go. Alternatively, you can spread your horizons a bit further and experience another culture entirely. Some of the most popular European destinations include London, Paris and Tokyo.
Making Sure You Are Ready For The Break
When you’re going away you often don’t think a lot about what you’re coming back to. As part of your planning for the break, take time to ensure that you’re not returning to a headache. Clean and tidy the home from top to bottom, or hire a cleaner for the day before you go. Returning to a tidy home is relaxing. Also organise Newark Airport parking so you know your car will be safe and ready for you to have the easiest trip home.
Switch Off Before You Take Off
If your boss or colleagues REALLY need to reach you while you’re away, there will be a way to do this. Don’t check your email and social networking non-stop while you’re away. Retaining a non-stop digital link to your job is not a good way of switching off, and will do little to distract from the stress of the job.
In fact, consider not even going on Twitter or Facebook while away. We’re such a networked world that it seems like news finds you wherever you are, and it’s often not great news. Cultivate your bubble if you want real peace.
Taking a break is the best way to deal with the constant and often tedious grind of working. If you can take in some of the world’s most outstanding scenery while you’re about it, so much the better. Unless you’re really trying to, it’s so much harder to feel like you’re snowed under while you’re sitting on a beach or relaxing in a hot spring.
You don’t get a chance to do it often, so when you get a chance to take a break why not make the most of it? It’s good for the mind, body and soul.
