Bring on retirement.

I know, I know, I’m just back from a five day visit to Paris and that was two weeks after a 7 day break in Galway, but I never really got to unwind and rest properly. I never take my phone when I go away and I am totally uncontactable so far as work is concerned, so that’s all sorted when I’m away, but I still never unwind. Although I have lovely times when away I can’t help remaining wound up as tight as a spring. I always return unrested. It’s only recently that I have recognised that. I need a week off to unwind and only then can I start to recuperate from emotionally gruelling work commitments. Bring on retirement.

I know what you're saying. And I don't know any solutions. It's all good now we're retired so hang on in there.

It takes me a long time to unwind too. If I go away for a week it's probably only the last couple of days I feel relaxed but that's tainted by the prospect of returning to work. Not a problem after Christmas though. There'll be nothing to unwind from or return to.

I can't imagine having to work for at least 7 more years. (for me)

I used to say I needed a week to recover from vacation before returning to work.

@caroldm vacations can be hard work.
