I am taking my family to Disneyland in exactly "24 sleeps" (that's how I explain it to my 5 year old). My daughter actually has a calendar on the fridge that we use to count down the days. Sometimes she counts backwards or the wrong direction or skips numbers, etc...but there is no question that she, and the whole family, have an immense amount of anticipation building up to this vacation.
I started preparing for this vacation, about a month ago.
Mentally thinking of all the things we need to bring to make it as easy as possible while standing in 30+ minute lines with a 2 and 5 year old. I've researched. Started lists. Thought about what stroller we want to bring. Purchased some Disney pajamas. Downloaded the Disney App. I am so excited for this vacation! I mean...it's Disneyland!
Are any of you like me when preparing for a vacation? Are you thinking about it, organizing it and anticipating it, months before it happens? There is actually a physiological reason we anticipate vacations: Our brains need to get away.
I hear from working moms all the time...
"I just need a vacation".
"I need a break".
"I'm desperate to get away".
Well...there is science behind this, and YOU DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO VACATION TO GET THE NECESSARY REST YOUR BRAIN IS CRAVING. In this short video I explain exactly what you can do to get the rejuvenation your brain and body requires WITHOUT actually going anywhere.
