Thinking about summer almost always brings up the thought of vacation. As a child we were living on the East Coast of the U.S. and we always took our vacation on Cape Cod. I have special memories of deep pine forests, ice cream cones, long bike trails and hot sandy beaches that warmed my toes. As I embraced the business world, the lines of vacation became more blurred. During some years time became less available and resources were expended with careful choice. At the same time the need for rejuvenation still existed. For me the most important thing has always been that I change my rhythm and pace so that I can begin to hear myself more deeply. This, for me, is the finest gift of a staycation or of a truly relaxing vacation.
Today with the world moving at such a quick pace, many of my friends and colleagues are reevaluating what they need in a vacation/staycation. For many this needs to be a block of time set aside for rejuvenation, contemplation and renewal. That is not to say that the traditional vacation luxury is to be discouraged. However, many people are being financially frugal or working more than they have in the past. So what’s a woman to do?
