The best way to maximize mini-staycations

Behaviors change when we’re liv­ing in abun­dance.

It’s cliche, but mar­ried peo­ple have dif­fer­ent sex lives than sin­gle peo­ple. As adults, even young ones, we don’t have the same grav­i­ta­tion­al pull towards can­dy or treats as we do as chil­dren.

I remem­ber hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with a friend about buy­ing music CD’s. I didn’t like that I could afford whichev­er ones I want­ed. It had got­ten to a point where I’d even buy music and not lis­ten to it as soon as I got home. Buying music wasn’t spe­cial any­more.

I lost that “spe­cial feel­ing” because I had become “suc­cess­ful”.

It’s iron­ic that it’s in abun­dance where we lose sight of our appre­ci­a­tion for indul­gences. One would imag­ine that the pur­suit of wealthy life would end in abun­dance, not become hard­er to appre­ci­ate.

You should vacation more often

Everyone needs to vaca­tion more.

Realistically, it’s not always pos­si­ble.

I hap­pen to live in NYC. A lot of peo­ple come to NYC for vaca­tion.

Why do I have to go some­where else to get a lit­tle (vaca­tion)?

I get that part of vaca­tion­ing is get­ting away (and I’ll be doing that in December).

Incorporating a lit­tle stay-cation is a great idea, but I’d sug­gest you role play.

Pretend you’re a tourist. Schedule it. Anticipate it the same way you would a vaca­tion. And when the time comes…

Turn off your fuck­ing phone and enjoy it.
