TLC Ideas for Busy Professionals that Can’t Vacation

TLC Ideas for Busy Professionals that Can’t Vacation

When everyone in the office seems to be taking time off to head out for a family vacation but your work obligations are in overdrive – taking all of your time, it’s hard to accept the fact that you are probably unable to partake in a summer beach getaway.

If this season has you bogged down at the office, here are a few ways to squeeze in some much needed TLC – even if it can only be obtained for a few fleeting minutes.

1~ Take a Short Walk. Even if every day seems to be jammed packed, take a few minutes and step away from your desk. Bring your sneakers and socks to work, and go for a brisk walk. A few minutes of fresh air is a great way to clear the mind and recharge your battery.

2~ Treat Yourself. Make an appointment for an evening manicure or pedicure. Looking your best makes you feel more confident. Purchase some nice smelling hand lotion, or a relaxing scented candle to enjoy at the office.

3~ Dine Healthy. When your stress level is at it’s peak, it’s the best time to eat healthy and stay hydrated. Treat yourself to a deluxe salad, full of fruits and vegetables. Eating right boosts your immune system and makes you have more energy for tackling difficult, busy days at the office.

4~ Connect with Friends. Call a friend and make special dinner plans. This will give you something to look forward to and going out is a wonderful stress reliever. Try making the arrangements for a new restaurant that you have been wanting to visit.

5~ Relax With Family. Even if your job has been all consuming, making you put in extra long hours during the week, make a point of visiting with family on the weekend. A trip to see family members for a relaxing afternoon visit is a great way to wind down and forget about the stresses at the office, while providing an opportunity to re-connect with those that  you love.

If you are too busy at the office to plan a tropical vacation this summer, trying some of these tips and ideas will help keep you on track at work, while providing some TLC for the mind and body.

Inspire would be a great venue for her, because she would be especially “inspiring” to women and they would enjoy interacting with her and hearing her story in general. A speaker like Patricia is invaluable and something I took as a privilege to sit through.
