After separation, you might feel the need to break away from your everyday life for a while. Not only to help heal the heart but to gain a fresh perspective. But what should you do?
To me, travelling and tasty food have always had a great attraction. We should of course not overindulge in food for emotional comfort, but we can use travel to explore and find out more about ourselves. One of the best things I did after a divorce was to travel. Therefore, at this moment in time, an adventure might be something to consider if you are stuck in a rut and don’t know where your life is heading. A getaway and a new experience, such as in the form of travelling, can help heal your heart as it helped to heal mine, and help you explore the wonders of other cultures, food and something new about yourself.
