Recently, most of us plan taking a trip away from the city. We have a busy life. We go to work five days out of the week, do college classes, and have internship, and somehow still have to keep our regular life in order. We rarely have time to relax and take time for ourselves. That’s why going on a camping trip was just what most of us need.
People take a getaway to ensure that they could connect with nature, unwind, and release that pent-up stress they have been harboring due to their active life.
I started planning one of my trips out with all the landmarks I would see on the way there and all the activities I would participate in, hoping that—by the time I was done—I would be a new, relaxed person. It was only going to be for a week, but a well-deserved week it was. The thing is, all of this was going to be ruined because I didn’t have car insurance. It was a small infraction, but my insurance company decided it was important enough to drop me, even though I knew I was never going to do it again. I learned my lesson, but that doesn’t mean my insurance company was going to go any easier on me. The only thing I could do to salvage my trip was to find some affordable SR22 insurance so I was legally able to drive. Now, with that taken care of, I could concentrate on enjoying my trip.
Once I had a plan that worked for me and put my mind at ease about driving so far, I was able to take my trip. It was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life; I met some awesome people and had the chance to see some new things. I was able to let go, soak up the sun, enjoy nature, and kick back, instead of worrying about all the stuff I had to deal with when I got back home. I thought that I would really enjoy roughing it in the wild, but after doing a little research, I decided I’d also have a good time somewhere sandy. I mean, what’s better than watching the waves, enjoying a drink, tanning, and enjoying the view? So I quickly adjusted my plans to include a detour to the nearest beach.
While my vacation was great, and I highly recommend it, I found myself being glad that I was headed back home. While all of my stressors are back at home, at least I know what to expect. I have a routine that I try to follow every day and I have contingency plans in place if things just don’t work out right. There’s nothing like some time away and a complete mental break, to help you avoid that complete mental breakdown! So, next time life gets you down and you feel like there’s no light at the end of your stressful tunnel of life, remember, a short break, even just a day or two, can make all the difference. It gives you a chance to breathe and reassess your priorities and get your head on straight.
