In this post, I’m going to approach self-care from a slightly different angle. My husband had his birthday and I wanted to give him something that is more than just a simple gift. He had been working very hard and I thought I’d like to help him take a break and get away from the usual everyday life. He also has some help issues, so I really wanted to give him a chance to redirect his focus to his self-care. Sometimes all of us need someone to look after us and nudge us in the right direction. It was my way of saying I care about you and you should do the same for yourself.
So I got a great getaway for a couple of days, but I didn’t tell him where I was taking him. The reason was that I wanted it to be a surprise for him.
I found a place in Vermont, which is around 5 hours away from us. It’s not too far, but far enough to feel that we’re in a totally different environment. I booked a suite, which has a living room with a fireplace, dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen. We’re semi-vegan since last year and I wanted to be able to prepare some food that can help us follow our diet.
There’s a swimming pool outside as well inside, with a hot tub, gym and a game room.
As you can see, I took no chance, making sure he could stay active by using the pool or gym.
The area also has a lot of places that we could visit, such as cheese and maple syrup farms and miniature golf.
Keep in mind that you also can influence others by creating a positive change that can inspire them.
