Vacation

A vacation is a period of time spent away from home or business in travel or recreation. Vacations can reduce your risk of heart attacks, boost your energy, lead to job promotions, make you happier with your life, help keep you calm, increase your lifespan, force you to be more efficient, and make you be a better boss. Last year, I took far too little vacation and it was hard on me physically and mentally. Now I aim to take more time off.

Respite

Respite

We all need a short period of rest and relief from the hustle and bustle and screen time of modern life. Our lives are bombarded with others wanting us to do something. Periodically I certainly need to detach from everything worldly and relax. Years ago while studying for my oral board examinations, I spent a long weekend in a Catholic Respite in Arkansas. It gave me such peace and allowed me to focus clearly on the important things in life. Now years later, I feel the need to search for that peace again.
