Time to Retreat?

Posted: March 27th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Articles, Health and Fitness | No Comments »

We all need time to get away from our design work and “re-charge” our creatives batteries. Problem is – do we do it often enough by actually planning for a “retreat”.

Think about giving yourself some time off by planning a personal, partner or family retreat. I know this sounds like common sense but how often do you actually plan it and then follow through?

I suggest planning a retreat at least once a month whereby you take the complete weekend off (if you don’t already) and engage with others in “non-work” activites – like plan a weekend to visit tag sales or go hiking or just work together around the house.

Or, if a personal retreat, treat yourself to a spa for a massage and complete pampering or rent a cabin in the mountains for a few days and enjoy the marvels of nature or head to your nearest big city and take in play or visit some museums.

Although a retreat may feel like an indulgence it serves the same purpose of refreshing your mind and re-charges your creativity.
