So many times we find ourselves coming back from vacation wishing we could maintain ‘the zen life’. You can! It’s all about making yourself take a time out. Try to let go of what’s blocking you. You’ll be more productive and happier if you take time for yourself. Think about how you want to spend that time. Is it taking 30 minutes before bed, where you draw a bubble bath? Or do you download the latest app on your mobile device that walks you through how to meditate. Is it more relaxing for you to stream Netflix and have a glass of wine? Pick your zen and force yourself to walk towards it. You will start to see how taking 30 minutes or an hour each day to meditate, drink green tea, listen to music, and laugh will enhance your appearance and enable you to deal with the stresses that come your way from the day-to-day hustle.

Start today by picking your favorite moment from the last vacation you took. For us, we really enjoyed sipping green tea and sticking to our yoga practice. Although we’re back in a dreary New York City January where it rains each day, we’ve made it a point to book an hour of yoga three times a week. So far, so good!

What does bringing the vacation to you mean? We’d love you to share your moments and how you’re making it a priority to continue them during your busy week.
