Escape can mean different things to different people. It doesn’t have to mean you don’t love where you are, although for some I guess getting away from where they are is the attractive part of the whole idea. Maybe escape is the wrong word. Maybe reprieve is an improvement? Space to breathe and collect yourself while your doing something else, or something different, or even nothing at all if thats possible. Doing anything, is doing something so it’s like doing nothing isn’t possible. You know what I mean, I’m sure.
I like reading a book, watching a movie, having a bath. It can be just sitting quietly for 5 minutes and reading, or putting my headphones on and listening to some music or a chapter from an audio book. Perhaps the most underrated activity is sleep. I love to have a good night’s sleep. I can’t remember the last time I fell asleep during the day because I have people to take care of, but sleep is just so good. Such a luxury and so necessary to our wellbeing. if someone sent me away on a weeks holiday alone, I would just luxuriate by reading and relaxing. I would sleep whenever I wanted, day or night. Obviously I would watch in house movies and order room service. If the weather was good and the hotel had a pool, I might even lounge by the pool and read and sleep there too 🙂
