Women today wear many hats. We are mothers, employees, employers, leaders, counselors, doctors, nurses, lawyers, negotiators, financial planners and more. Some of us are even a large combination of more than one of the above. As women it seems like we are wired to give and give until there is nothing left, but ladies I’m here to tell you that you can have it all as long as you take care of yourself first. Now, you may be wondering what all this has to do with travel and its simple- one of the best ways to take care of ourselves is to travel.

Traveling lets you take a break. It is your time to not be responsible for anyone or anything. Yes, if you are bringing kids along you have to make sure they are safe, but for the most part it is a time where meals are prepared for you, the beds and rooms are cleaned for you, transportation is handled for you and you are just along for the ride. Traveling allows you to recharge your batteries so that you have more to give back to your families, your friends, even your jobs.

I’ve seen it time and again and you probably have too. Think about the last time you went on a vacation and truly unplugged. How did you feel when you got back? You may not have wanted to come home, but I’ll bet you felt better than you did before you left. I would even go so far as to say you may have come back a completely new and improved you. In our daily lives things get hectic and getting away from it all through traveling is one of those crucial components that we must add in order to achieve a healthy balance. There is a saying that you can’t give from an empty cup, so do yourself a favor and schedule some you time and refill your cup. Here’s to your sense of well being!
