Luxury travel tip: build in me-time

Simply Sunday.  The more exacting the life schedule, be it travel or getting ready for it, or simply staying home, the more you need to build in me-time.  It is maintenance for the mind (read a book, do a crossword puzzle, or go shopping).  It is essential maintenance for the body – go cycling, take a walk, run a marathon, or whatever.

I find that a combination of both, maintaining mind and body, is going to the spa for a really good facial.  As soon as you go into a spa environment you are adrift from the outside world. While you are lying on the bed, say for a Natura Bissé Diamond Infusion at The Spa At the Beverly Wilshire, your mind goes super-natural.  You drift, mentally.  You do think of things, but not in a worried way. Sixty minutes later, you are gently asked if it is all right, and how do you feel?  Marvellous, is the answer. I am ready for yet more travelling.
