The thing about holidays is that the rhythm of my life goes all haywire.
It seems like it is ideal.
I can do what I want, sleep when I want, watch movies when I want, exercise when I want, eat when I want…
And that all sounds perfect, except it does not suit my constitution.
I am a creative soul who is incredibly nurtured by rhythms and structures.
I love deciding, in advance, what is important to me and then structuring my time to reflect that.
The decisions about what I will be doing when are then taken care of.
Time away from such a schedule is great, for a moment, but I tend to let go of the fundamental things that keep me balanced. Movement, writing this letter early each day, eating my meals at regular times, getting enough sleep…
Maybe I need to build a holiday rhythm? So that way I can have time away from the everyday but not lose the fundamentals?
Also, it’s nice to have a break every now and then, but the everyday is not a punishment I need to escape.
It is comforting to know that I love the rhythm of my life.
