Creating a Life You Don’t Need a Vacation From

Do you often find yourself living for the weekend and counting down to your next vacation? Does every week inevitably start with the Sunday Scaries followed by the worst case of the Mondays ever? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you probably know that is no way to live. So, let me ask you one other little (HUGE) question: What if you were able to create a life you don’t need a vacation from? A life where vacations are a bonus, not an escape or a necessity in order to function.

It is possible, and it doesn’t mean you have to sell all your worldly possessions and backpack across the country. (Although you could totally do that.) All it takes is getting real about what balance truly looks like and a willingness to bring aspects of what feels like a vacation to you into your everyday life. Sounds pretty great, right? Let’s dive into the possibilities!
