Holiday Weekend Time for a Real Break

In Canada, this is the first holiday weekend to kick off the spring/summer season.  At the supermarket today, I saw people stocking up on groceries, barbecue supplies and beer for a weekend of kicking back and some serious R and R. …… Hopefully.  As I observed the campers on their way out of town and the people in some hurry to officially start the weekend, I wondered if their  formula for this weekend really added up to self care, relaxation , rejuvenation and simply spending quality time to achieve a weekend that would resulted in some peace of mind and happiness.  It might be “overthinking it” but it’s worth taking the time to think about these events as a means of achieving what we really want for ourselves instead of going through the motions of a few days — only to land at Tuesday morning without having gotten a break for ourselves.

Everyone has a different definition of their needs foe a holiday weekend.  The important thing is to have some idea of what it means to you. What do you do on these holidays to unwind?
