It was exquisite and exactly what I needed. We all need to get away once in a while: Away from the hustle and bustle, the commute, the office, the job, the work, the race, and just take time to relax. Our retreat was in a beach house and it couldn’t be more perfect.
We spent our days, talking, joking, singing together, dining, exploring, enjoying nature and even fitting in time for a steam and a massage at a spa. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend everyone do it at least once a year.
Getting out and spending time in nature with no internet, wifi, computer access or coverage bars or signal on my smart phone is critical for me. In order to maintain my physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health, I need to spend time out in nature, away from technology. There is no better place to do this than high up in the mountains, out in the woods, surround by rushing rivers, quiet and purity.
This is what I am doing this weekend, an escape from crowding. I am at high elevation in a pine forest, surrounded by serenity, open sky, clear air, wild animals, no traffic or computers or offices and plenty of peace and quiet. I am far from the daily commute and hustle of the daily grind. This is my paradise and as long as I can come here frequently, I can maintain my personal balance and remain healthy and inspired.
