Sometimes it’s good to spend a day out of the office….. I was lucky enough to spend a few days in the bucolic countryside of Litchfield County, Connecticut a few weeks ago. Although there was still snow on the ground, it was warm and sunny and as you can see I was jumping for joy!
A few days away from the computer, social media and the phone ringing is just what the doctor ordered! I almost didn’t know what to do with myself, but after the initial anxiety wore off (right, I know …. anxious about relaxing?), I dug in and really began to enjoy myself.
Yup, that’s about all we did – watched Netflix and relaxed … I’m totally addicted to The Heart of Dixie with Rachel Bilson. Super cute, super sappy, super easy to watch while flipping through magazines, chatting and napping. And the luxury to just close my eyes and doze off was awesome.
We stocked up on our favorite snacks – potato chips, pipcorn, bourbon and chips and guacamole … And in between episodes of Billions and The Heart of Dixie, I finished Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and made a good dent in Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes.
I was one happy camper! I came home refreshed, relaxed and ready to hit the ground running … So, whether it’s 15 minutes in the morning for yourself, a full day off or a few days in nature and seclusion – take some much needed time away from your devices to re-charge. You’ll be glad you did!
