Relaxation & Recreation

While many of us derive our pleasure from the day-to-day production of (hopefully) tangible work, we all need to step back occasionally and get away.  Such is the case for me this past few days.  We traveled to Waters Edge Resort in Beautiful Ucluelet, British Columbia on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

After a scenic trip passing by Cameron Lake, Cathedral Grove, Port Alberni, Sproat Lake, Kennedy River, and Kennedy Lake we arrived at the destination.  It was a good day and felt nice to relax on the deck with the chatter of sea lions in the harbour keeping us company.

It is essential to our well-being to take time for ourselves and our families.  Our health will be better as will our relationship with those we love!  While Ucluelet and the west coast of Vancouver Island is our choice for this escape, everyone has their favourite spot in Beautiful British Columbia or further afield.

We perform better when time is taken away from our daily routine.  It is an opportunity to learn new things and re-tune the mind.  New experiences expand our thinking and expose us to differing viewpoints.

Seeing the enormity of the Kennedy Hill project first-hand, I no longer will comment, “Why is it taking so long?”  At the junction of the road to either Ucluelet or Tofino, you can feel the stress leave as you enter another time and space.

If you haven’t stepped away from the rat-race lately, make plans immediately to visit your favourite place to recharge.

Try it, your life will like you for it!
