Sometimes holidays can be so amazing we never want to let go of the feeling. Other times it is impossible to let go and enjoy it as we are so preoccupied by what is going on back home.
A relaxing holiday seems to give us a mental system reboot. Day to day concerns melt away, decision making is easier and we often gain a helpful new point of view on things that previously felt difficult. On returning home we might try and remember how things looked from our vacation vantage point, or just brace ourselves for the inevitable onslaught of ’normal life’.
Other times being on holiday can feel stressful. Switching off from what’s going on back in the office seems an impossible task. We might have an idea of how our holiday should be, only to be disappointed. We might feel like we’re not having as much fun as we should.
It cannot just be dependent on the destination or the company as we have probably all experienced both types of holiday regardless of who we are with or where we went. So then what is it dependent on and how can we have a great holiday whatever is happening or wherever we are going?
Susan Marmot and her guest speaker Melissa Mehta will be looking at where that mental freedom comes from and how it can be available to us all of the time. From that mental vantage point, the horizons are endless.
Please join us for the last class of the summer. Community Nights will resume in September.
