Good morning Bitpost.
I slept on the floor last night. The bed was hot, or maybe I just needed to do something different. It’s been a while since I’ve done something outside of my normal routines. I don’t take time away from work. The last time I tried…well let’s just say it didn’t go well.
I read somewhere that vacations stimulate the fight or flight response we have. Unfamiliar surroundings require us to adjust to those surroundings. I can’t say I disagree with this. Getting away from daily routines tends to be refreshing.
My family wasn’t much for vacations growing up, but we did tag along with my Dad on a few work trips to beach towns. And of course family reunions. As an adult, I did a couple trips overseas, and have done the occasional long weekend with my girlfriend here and there.
It has been a while since I explored a new area, especially without the structure of a schedule. I wonder if that would jog my senses. I’ve been feeling in a bit of a rut lately. Groundhog day or something. Gotta break the cycle.
