Every year I have a weekend trip to Miami to relax and unwind. I turn my phone off. I don’t tweet or “instagram” during that time. I just do the things that I want to do and absorb “peace of mind”. Well, unfortunately this year my schedule was thrown off so I couldn’t go to Miami but I didn’t let that stop me from doing my “me time” trip. I just flew to Dallas for a few days. I stayed at the W Hotel downtown and spent my days by the pool and in the bed watching movies. I had a few books that I wanted to catch up on so I read a lot during that time. The Bliss Spa is also located in the hotel so OF COURSE I took advantage of the services. I had a facial and a carrot/sesame seed body treatment! Whew!!! It was the best!!! I needed it!
Relaxing does not mean that my routine needs to stop ya know! I ran 4 miles at Katy Park which is right down the street from the hotel. The park was gorgeous!! I also worked out every day in the workout room that overlooked the city. I still made sure that I ate well while I was there. I drank my green tea every morning…ate turkey on wheat at the pool and healthy fruit and veggies throughout the day.
I think everyone deserves some me time. Maybe it isn’t even a trip but just a few hours away from everything. We all need time to regroup. Work, school, kids and family can take a toll on us. We are alway thinking and preparing for something. Sometimes it feels good to clear your mind!!
I look forward to next year’s trip!
