Achievement unlocked: good holiday

PoP's tea party

The last time I was back off holiday and feeling this rested, I was about four hours away from my life being turned upside-down. Hopefully it’ll work out better this time. 🙂

I’ve been off at my brother’s place in France, enjoying a quiet family holiday, with minimal internet access*. I’ve successfully disconnected and enjoyed myself, and started climbing down from the high peaks of stress I was feeling before I left.

Still, there’s a mountain of work ahead of me, but I’d rather climb that minatian than the stressy one…

I need to think some more about the benefits of periods of disconnection. It did wonder for my headspace, so I’ll be poking at that a little in the coming months. Just because you can always be connected doesn’t mean that you should always be so. Making mindful decisions around that is an emergent skill, I suspect.

Anyway, lovely to see you all again. I hope you’re well?

*Mainly due to a botched WiFi arrangement in the house. I eventually broke down and resolved the DHCP conflict before I left…
