Needed Inconvenience over Christmas
What did you do over the Christmas, New Years’ break?
Do you relax and take a break?
If so, was this hard for you to stop and relax?
Over the last ten days, we have spent some family time in Thredbo. It has been a well needed break from our normal schedule of life in Canberra. Not that Canberra is a busy city, however we do live a self-inflicted busy lifestyle. As most of you would have noticed, I also took a break from blogging for a few days. This extended to emails and most forms of communication. It was great to get a have a complete break.
Within days I was refreshed. I think it was a combination of the break from my usual schedule and the combination of activities that we participated in around Thredbo… Backing up a bit, I must explain that I have a tendency towards being a workaholic. I have a habit of pushing myself to achieve many things and hence tend to have too much on my plate. You may relate. For me this time of year provides a perfect opportunity to rest and relax. In is the needed inconvenience for me.
If you are like me and find it hard to relax, ensure that you block out some times in your schedule where you can relax and spend time with those important to you. At the time it may be hard and seem like an inconvenience, however it is an investment into your health and relationships. And wouldn’t you perform better when your health is good and your relationships in order?
So what does Thredbo have to offer to relax and spend time with the family….. lots…… As a snapshot, we did a number of walks, I went on a number of runs, we bobsledded, had cuppas at good cafes (Altitude 1380 and Gourmet 42 in particular), a couple of dinners out at good restaurants, Kim had a massage, we took the Chairlift to the top, had a cuppa at Australia’s highest restaurant Eagle’s Nest, went Horse Riding, Analise had her Face Painted, Kim and I played Squash and then there is the swimming pool including a waterslide.
Of course there is much more to do in Thredbo in the Summer months, however this was a great start….. The three of us had a great time and I look forward to our next trip back to Thredbo. The trip was great to relax, reflect on 2012, plan 2013 and be ready for another awesome year.
