1. It’s okay to slow down. Most of our vacations have been go, go, go. This time we were visiting family after a wedding. It was kind of nice to have a balance of fun and relaxing.
2. Go with the flow. In my normal life, I am the planner. It was nice to let my sister make the plans. Since, I wasn’t responsible, I had no problems when plans had to change.
3. Don’t stress out. Invariably, traveling can bring challenges. See #2.
4. Be in the moment. Your vacation is short. Don’t spend it worrying about what’s next. Use your senses. Ground yourself in the little moments.
