Taking leave to go for a holiday during a working career is quite common for most of the people. I also hear of people trying to squeeze all the itineraries into the holidays. These people usually end up being exhausted after the holidays. They usually do not have ample rest before resuming the work schedule. I used to be one of such people and now adopt a different approach. I usually plan one activity a day during my holiday trip. If the activity does not proceed as usual due to unfavourable weather such as storm, typhoon etc, it’s fine with me as I can take this opportunity to have a great rest at the lodge. Well-deserved rest is also considered as a holiday.
What is a holiday in my prespective? In my prespective, a holiday is an opportunity to recharge my energy which has been depleted by the stress during the work. I do not see any sense in packing all the itineraries in my holidays which eventually makes me more tired. As such, I opine that one should take holiday in a slow/relaxing pace. This is the way to enjoy life.
This brings up the question of terminating the full-time employment on a permanent basis. As mentioned before, one will need an investment portfolio which generate dividends replacing the expenses on a continuous basis. One can lead the lifestyle in a slow and relaxing manner which is considered as holiday for me. Life is meant for slow enjoyment and cherishing in the moment based on my prespective. There is no need to rush here and there and this will makes it more exhausted and tired in the end. You may not agree with me based on your prespectives and personal encounter.
To each of all own.
