Breaking Routine

Who is tired of the same daily routine?  What do you do when your days get all too predictable and start sucking the life out of you?

I know when I get stuck in the rigid hold of routine I start getting restless and agitated.  That is when I start looking for ways to shake things up and do something different.  Sometimes the perfect solution to “Restless Routine Syndrome” is a vacation from your day-to-day.


There are lots of ways to go on vacation–and not all require taking a lot of time off work.  Try a new activity, get outside, walk or bike without having any set destination in mind.  These are good ways to start if you don’t have the time to go anywhere.

Planning a getaway is another great way to refresh and revitalize your life.  For me, these adventures can range anywhere from a day to over a month and usually involve:

  • Leaving the city I live in to get a change of scenery (even if it is for another city)
  • Exploring–nature, art, culture, language, foods, or a new place
  • Spending time with friends or making new friends along the way
  • Being active
  • And having fun of course!

Here are a few examples of my getaways from 2011:

  • Venice Beach “Pretend to Be a Tourist Day”
  • LA Redbull Soapbox Races Day
  • Newport Beach Weekend
  • San Luis Obispo Boating Weekend
  • India for a Month

Need some ideas to start some adventures of your own?  Let us help!  With the Maritime Museum of San Diego you can:

The best part is–it’s all about you–so enjoy what makes you come alive.

What sounds like a fun getaway to you?

Fair winds,
