It is human nature to, time and again, yearn to simply get away from the usual schedules and go to unwind somewhere away from the usual hustle and bustle that define modern-day living.
Life today is without doubt, stressful, busy and draining for many people and the majority would likely give anything they can afford to escape to an exotic location to, albeit momentarily, take a break to forget their problems and recharge themselves.
Around the world, there are many tropical locations where one can go for a vacation. And while quite a number are expensive, there equally are many that are within the means for the average individual.
Such tropical locations lure one to settings with beautiful sunny beaches, tropical wilderness safaris, no cold winter climates and who wouldn’t fall for the allure of relaxing outside on a hammock while gazing at the starry tropical night skies.
Tahiti, French Polynesia, Aegean Islands, Seychelles, Mauritius, the Maldives, and Bora bora among others are tropical locations that are quite a sight for vacationers. But the bulk of these are quite expensive for the affordability of many and often tend to be a preserve for the moneyed lot.
There are nonetheless settings elsewhere such as the beautiful beaches and interior locations in countries like Belize, Bahamas, Costa Rica, Brazil, Kenya, Zanzibar, Namibia, New Zealand, Australia and many others that straddle the equator which offer top-notch tropical settings for summer vacation.
Such locations afford vacationers not just the beach settings but also exciting tours, amenities, sights and many other discoveries to experience inland.
Exotic locations in Hawaii, Panama, Colombia, Puerto Rico and Florida among other areas close-by also offer tropical conditions and are exciting options for vacationing. Entrepreneur and real estate developer Shalom Lamm is one person who appreciates maintaining a balance in his living.
This Chief Executive Officer of the nonprofit organization called Operation Benjamin which has the primary goal of safeguarding the memories of American-Jewish servicemen and women who lost their lives during the Second World War has a set time management strategy to enable him to attend to his busy work schedule and also find time to spend with his family, friends and loved ones.
According to Lamm, the key is to learn to have some sort of balance between your work life and the time you dedicate to being with your family. He remarks that practicing this kind of balance and incorporating vacations away from your work surroundings; to go and unwind with your family and loved ones, plays a key role in ensuring an altogether satisfied and happy living.
The entrepreneur who has a bachelor of arts in philosophy degree from Yeshiva University in New York City, and a master’s in US military history from the American Military University in Manassas, Virginia stresses that no matter what, it always is important to make time for your family.
Such time, may inadvertently, entail vacationing together; be in tropical vacation locations or just at exciting sites in the neighborhood. The West Hempstead, Long Island resident is also a history degree holder and therefore keen on museums. He confesses to enjoying going to museums together with his family and also his students.
That said, the key message that can be picked from Shalom Lamm’s policy is the importance of planning and striking a balance in the workplace to make time for one’s family and loved ones. This moment should then be spent taking time off together.
And while tropical settings are probably the most preferred locations to go to for these vacations, due to constraints occasioned by finances, or travel restrictions, an interesting site in the neighborhood or neighboring states would do just fine as well.
