Good Ways to Make a Quick and Brief Getaway

By  | 

Do you feel at every turn someone asking for your money, your time and/or your things? Try disappearing for a little while so you can resurface with a clear head and calm spirit.

On an impulse extend grocery shopping, church or work with a few hours of me time.

Here are four ways to consider how to chill for a few hours:

1.         Go to a movie or two alone and get lost in the dark. Make it a movie that takes you places and soothes you. Don’t pick an action packed, mystery or horror film. Choose one that may make you laugh or cry the two emotions that may bring that calming effect.

2.         Buy a silly tabloid. Find an indoor or outdoor bench in a quiet place. Stay away from a mall or store where you will be tempted to spend or buy something you may regret.

3.         Treat yourself to a quiet elegant place for dinner.  Tell the waiter you are not in a hurry and to pace your courses so they are not served at once. Take your time, enjoy the meal and let your mind wonder.

4.         Get lost in the woods. Walk the safest wooded trail in your town. Take your time, this is not a physical exercise but a mental one. Be sure to enjoy the nature around you.

At the end of these escapes, meditate on how you will handle the issues facing you.
