The 3 Rs of Taking a Vacation Without Leaving Home

This summer, get away, without going away. Take a mini vacation right in your own home. You owe it to yourself to practice the 3 R's - recharge, relax and renew.

*Have the post office hold your mail.

*Turn off your cell phone. I know it's hard, but let the answering machine pick up your calls.

*Turn off your computer. This is tough too, but you must take a break from business.

*Rent a couple of travel videos of places you've wanted to see. Don't watch the news or regular TV shows.

*Rent a yoga, tai-chi, or meditation video.

*Arrange for catering or take-out delivery.

*Have plenty of fruits, healthy snacks and fresh drinks stocked.

*Get a relative to take the kids (you can reciprocate later).

*Take a long bubble bath and read this summer's hottest novel.

*Arrange for a reputable massage therapist to make a house call.

*Send yourself a gift basket.

*Burn summer scented candles like Cantaloupe, Ocean Mist, Creamsicle, Hawaiian Paradise, Watermelon or Lily of the Valley.

We all need to get away for a short while and have time by ourselves or with a loved-one. Spending time relaxing can have an enormous effect on your well-being and reset your mind and body for increased productivity.

Deborah DeLuna is a professional Massage Therapist and has been in the luxury hotel and hospitality business for over 25 years. Her love of candles came out of using them everyday in business and her personal life. Visit her website at: http://www.createamood.com
