I’m a true believer the best time is spent with family and friends, and my personal favorite time is weekend getaways with just the girls. We all need a little pampering and sometimes we just have to do it ourselves.
As you may already know a weekend has been planned for the girls at a Virginia State Park. Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, Va. is offering for the first time ever a Women’s Wellness Weekend, which is what we all truly need.
For those of us not willing to letgo of the pile of papers, which seem to be slowly creeping higher and higher on our desks or the home decorating projectturning into more than planned or thedaughter’s wedding you arestarting tobecome overwhelmed by, then now is the time to take one giantstep back and take a deepbreath. What I am about to tell you is absolutely necessary – you have to take a break for yourself!
I’m serious, the pile of papers will still be there when you get back, the home decorating project can wait one more weekend, and your daughter isn’t going to run off and elope. From April 24-26, 2009, you need to join Virginia State Parks at Hungry Mother for a weekend getaway.
Bring your girlfriends and youdecide what todo. Relax all weekend ina cabin, take a morning hike, learn how to kayak orfind a nice quiet place to journalin nature. If you enjoy more of the pampering pleasure then enjoy a massage or two or take a yoga class to relax.
Sometimes, and I am guilty as charged, you just run into a creative block. My brain just seems to run out of ideas and needs a break from thinking. The best park about this Women’s Wellness Weekend is there is no thinking involved. You get an opportunity to rejuvenate yourself and recharge. A weekend getaway with your best friends or family away from the men – what’s there to think about? This is the best kind of weekend to unblock your creativeness and start back up what you’ve been putting off.
If you’re still having trouble deciding on whether to go away for a weekend then think about it this way – you do so much pampering for everyone else in your life, whynot treat yourself and do something for just you? After all – you deserve it.
