… wondering why live, laugh, thrive ‘s been off the radar…( I call it a ‘sabbatical’)…the good news is I know you got on just fine without me! 🙂
FACT: most of us don’t take enough ‘sabbatical’ time. We are into being ‘there’ all the time for others, we try to eat right, exercise, take supplements, socialize, get enough sleep, etc., and hope that does it for us. But sometimes something tells us we need more. A sabbatical is more than a holiday away from a busy schedule. It’s a lifestyle we need to learn to practise and build into our lives in meaningful ways. It’s about making room to rethink, repurpose and recalibrate. It’s about giving your mind and body plenty of time off . A sabbatical can mean a spiritual retreat or it could mean taking an adventurous lengthy trip away, but far more practically and simply it’s about adding regular ‘R&R’ to your ‘to-do’ list.
Don’t wait to take sabbatical time ‘some day’ or maybe when you retire. Do it now. One small tip: don’t abandon your friends and loved ones — just gently let others know you may not be available to do this or that. And whatever your sabbatical time means or looks like for you, commit to NOT to giving up on it. Build it into your everyday time — and live well — body, mind and spirit.
