Didn't get that holiday break in a sunny clime this year? Give yourself the gift of mini breaks in your own area...the "be a tourist in your own home town" idea.
Pick up tourist info brochure, pretend you've never been to your area before, & follow the highlight suggestions...you have an adventure before you, the adventure of surprise.
Take in the sights that your tourism group promotes, enjoy lunch & dinner at new places, take a different route from here to there...go to the theatre & remind yourself why a live performance is so involving...how about a live concert...been to your Art Gallery lately? A museum (no, they're not just for school tours)?
Consider a massage...that touch that heals is a major restorative.
Walk a garden...snowdrops are out, early rhodos, ornamental cherry blossoms in protected enclaves, daffodil bulbs poking up...every day is a little lighter.
Need a light movie to make you smile? Seen The Butcher's Wife?
Shake it up a little, dare to do something a little different to your established routine...you're on a baby holiday, right?
A quick fix...buy some tulips, red or yellow...the centerpiece for dinner!
Spring is almost here...ahh...breathe.
