I know that it’s just after christmas and people are taking things easy in the first couple of months of the new year, but there has never been a better time to take a break and get away this weekend. It is so easy for us to hop on a plane and escape that there is little excuse for us not to get away as much as possible. All you have to to is take look at what www.flybe.com have at the moment, you will be amazed by just how reasonable it is to catch a flight out of here for the weekend. We all seem to have a list of reasons why we can’t go away, but here is my list of 5 reasons why you should forget those excuses and get away for the weekend.
We all work hard during the week and seem to be living for the weekend, so we should make as much as possible of our free time. If you work hard then you have to make sure that you play hard! Life is short and we should make the most of it, so having something to look forward to is a great idea.
Change it up
Sometimes it can feel that our lives are fixed and are schedule never changes. It is easy to get caught up in a mundane routine with no fun or spontaneity, if you plan to head off for the weekend you get the chance to change your schedule and you will instantly feel refreshed. Getting away gives your mind the opportunity to relax and recuperate, it might even help you reevaluate things at home or at work – who knows, you might even get a great idea for your next project.
Ditch the iPhone and get off the laptop for a weekend and actually talk to real people, having interactions with new people is good for you. If you have your head stuck in a computer all week, then getting to chat to new people is absolutely essential. It doesn’t mean that you will find life long friends, but you will get to meet people from different parts of the world.
Kick back and relax
Living in the city can drain you both mentally and physically, getting away gives you the chance to relax and recharge. Coming back from a weekend away you will have a new lease of life and feel energised.
Step out of your comfort zone
We have to step outside of our comfort zone every now and then, trying it just for a weekend is perfect. We need new challenges and new experiences, staying inside your comfort zone will not help you to achieve that. So, make the decision to learn new things, try new food and you will find yourself getting a lot more confident.
