I went on a retreat last weekend and it was so renewing. I meditated, wrote, prayed, read & wandered in nature. I hadn’t even realized how much in productive mode I have been until I stopped.
A retreat is renewing self care, whether at home or away. Too often we get in the cycle of working too hard then flopping into some passive entertainment like our phones, TV or internet. Then instead of renewed we feel like we lost time and are still jangly.
Real renewal helps you feel calmly energized. And this can be different for everyone.
What renews you? Can you do that this weekend?
If you want to retreat, but don’t know how, I have a retreat kit with ideas from many years of retreating.
