On a day when we normally talk up glam travel and exotic escapes, an iconic pic of Carrie and BIG that I recently posted on Instagram got me thinking about escapes on a more philosophical level; more specifically, how spending even a few minutes with a meaningful human in your life (be it a relative, friend or significant other) can serve as an immediate mood booster and offer much-needed respite from the daily stress and stuff that no life is without.
Suddenly, as you giggle over an inside joke with your person, bond over a shared confidence, or just sit in companionable silence, regular stress and daily BS melt away, reminding you what really matters and reinvigorating in a way that only real deal authentic human connection can.
Moral of this story? When the little and big of life overwhelm and you find yourself overstressing and in desperate need of a month in the Caribbean, start with a deep exhale and some quality time with a quality peep.
Because a little goes a long way …
