How to spend a vacation with benefits for the brain, body and soul
They say that stupid vacation tires work worse. They say that rest is a change of activity. They say investment in travel is an investment in yourself. They say … Yes, but for some reason, again and again, leaving the workplace for a week or two, many “labor shock workers” for days on end only “seal” on the beach or can not disconnect from work issues. As a result, they return to their everyday rhythm, whining, supposedly, the vacation flew by unnoticed, as if there was none at all. Ha! There are several ideas on how to turn beach degradation into relaxation with benefits for health, mind and your instagram.
Rest with meaning: yoga tours, field trainings, educational tourism
A typical problem of “invisible” vacation is its hollowness and uniformity. If you spend all weekends in one place, don’t do anything special, communicate in a narrow circle, then two weeks feel like two days. But what if you take a vacation with a meaning: not just wallow on a deck chair or check in near the monuments, but learn something new, master some techniques that will make your vacation more interesting and useful in everyday life ?! And here’s what: when the pastime is saturated with a change of locations, acquaintances, thrills, when you try something unusual, acquire new skills and knowledge, then it seems that half a life fit in two weeks. Upon returning from such a holiday, you will be full of enthusiasm, strength and energy, and not despondency and regret about a short vacation.
Another common misfortune of vacationers is the inability to relax, disconnect from business, and cease to control everyone and everything, including household members and employees. Such people leave work only geographically, and mentally remain in suspense. Needless to say, such a vacation is also down the drain ?!
Another remark. Work is such a villain who steals not only peace, sleep and rest on the weekend. She also interferes with hobbies, self-development, fulfilling dreams …
visiting seminars and trainings
Feel that you have become hostage to meaningless vacation, vampire work or weak-will, because of which cherished desires are covered with dust? As Superman, as Mario, as Chip and Dale, a special type of tourism rushes to your aid, where travel and intensive training are combined. In fact, these are visiting master classes, seminars, trainings abroad or in the green corners of their native country, the program of which necessarily provides for time for ordinary relaxation (beach, walks to attractions, excursions, trips, shopping, etc.).
Previously, such a vacation was a rarity, a curiosity, and many looked at him with suspicion. Now, rest with benefit and with meaning is a trend. Namely:
Field psychological trainings, including personal growth and women’s trainings;
Meditation and yoga – tours for beginners and advanced (to India, Bali, Nepal and other locations where spiritual practices are common);
Field training-intensives devoted to “club” types of physical activity (martial arts, dancing, horse riding, diving, etc.)
Tours in which travel places are closely intertwined with the type of training. For example, scratch tours, where customers are taught how to sketch landmarks from nature; lessons of photos and videos where the group works with material captured on vacation or excursions; training “in the fields” for beginner travel bloggers on YouTube and Instagram …
Educational tourism. Organized trips where training and practice are tied to a specific location. For example, a tour to London with an emphasis on learning English; hiking in the mountains with the study of geology; a trip to the savannah or a jungle with a biologist.
Level 80 Holidays
What to do for those who are too lazy to strain their brains by learning languages, and awl in the same place does not allow them to sit in the lotus position? Take a look at extreme tourism. Parachuting, climbing mountain peaks, rafting, off-road and mountain moto tours, stalker and survival trips … There are many types of outdoor activities where tickling nerves is a bonus, but keep in mind that today almost all of them branch out into 2-3 directions :
Sports (professional). It includes regular training, participation in competitions, work for the result. Suitable for those who are ready to give the lion’s share of time, effort and money to achieve victories (professionalism) in the selected sport / activity. You can’t squeeze this direction into the framework of your vacation, here you need full daily immersion and strict discipline.
Amateur (hobby). Weaker than sports, it is aimed not at the race for results, but at the pleasure, but also requires training and a serious attitude. This direction, goes well with holidays and weekends, because you are completely free to choose the time, place and load.
Commercial (client). It appeared relatively recently. The main difference between this direction and the first two is that the client does not have to be in the subject of an extreme type of interest. He simply hires an instructor who in a short time will teach the necessary minimum and will help to achieve the chosen goal one-time.
