We are familiar with the advice that having a holiday is good for our mental health. We have also heard that even a day or two in a different environment will bring benefits. Sometimes you have to actually do something to realise just how true the advice you hear is in reality. I came home this afternoon after approximately 30 hours away from home. Was that long enough to make me relax and feel energised? The answer is, ‘Yes’.

I spent some time with a cousin who lives about 25 kilometres away. The time away was easy to organise as it wasn’t for long. There was little financial cost. My accommodation was excellent. The food was great and I slept really well. As I was in the company of someone I have known since childhood I felt at ease.

We spent lots of time talking, reminiscing and laughing. The ‘history’ and childhood memories we share mean there is a special bond between us. As a local festival was in full swing we attended a couple of events which we both really enjoyed. This provided more for us to discuss. We agreed that these events will provide important shared memories as we grow older.

This morning we went for a lovely walk along the walking/cycle track which runs along a river. The sights stimulated conversation. Our Grandmother lived close to this river several kilometres downstream from where we were walking.

I took many photos during the short time I was away from home. I will email a few to my cousin. Some will be useful images for articles I write. They will all act as a reminder of a wonderful short break.

A break, no matter how short, can allow one to relax. It breaks your routine so you come home refreshed. I would recommend taking a short break whenever possible rather than waiting for a longer annual holiday.
