Over the holidays, I’ll be taking quality time off

Over the holidays, I’ll be taking “quality” time off.


What do I mean by quality?

I mean that I will be using my vacation time to rejuvenate with intention.

In the past, I bought into the notion that time off meant tossing out the to-do lists and schedules.

So, for years, that’s what I did.

But feelings of boredom often crept in quickly.

I ended spending too much time binge-watching Netflix.

Overindulging in food and drinks.

And wasting time scrolling on social media.

When it was time to return to work, I felt slothful and guilty.

Was this rejuvenating?

A few years ago, I began taking a different approach.

I made a to-do list.

Not with work projects.

But with positive self-care activities.

Every day I made a schedule.

Not for business meetings.

But to plan when I was to exercise, meditate, and read.

It worked.

Now, when I return, I feel productive and satisfied.

Vacation time off, I learned, isn’t about tossing out to-do lists and calendars.

It’s about being intentional about what you put on it.

During my quality time off over the holidays, I’ll be rejuvenating.

I hope you are too.

Happy holidays.

See you in 2021!
