An escape for me depends on a lot of things, and sometimes it can be as simple as finding a different place to write for a couple of hours. Some escapes can even be as simple as going to a hotel across the city from home for a couple of nights. Other escapes can be doing to Niagara Falls for a long weekend and being a tourist. Sure, Niagara Falls can be very busy in the summer, but off season it can be a wonderful place to enjoy yourself.
Any escape no matter what you do can make such a difference. It is a means of recharging your personal battery and forgetting about some of the pressures and stress of the normal routine. Being able to forget the things that you can’t do for a couple of days can make such a difference to have you handle things when you get back to your normal routine.
Being able to figure out what works as an escape for you can make such a difference. Knowing what is important to you and what you need in your escape can help a lot. For me, one of the things that I have to do is not over plan my escape. I need to know that the schedule I have for the escape is extremely flexible.
An escape no matter how long it is does come to an end, but at least it has been an escape from the normal routine. When you get back to your normal routine, things are still going to be there from before you left, but at least they may not seem as difficult or overwhelming.
Escaping the normal routine is very important to everyone. Your escape can be different each time, or it can be the same, but at least it is an escape, and that’s what is important.
