I am totally with you on this. I do so much better when I’m away. In fact, sometimes I need to go away just to get back to the moment. When I’m home, it is so familiar and so easy to slip back into certain ways of thinking/being. When on the road, I have to be–and naturally am–in the moment. I think that’s what makes travel so wonderful, you know?

Having said this, the real challenge is at home. I try to do things differently, take interesting day trips, etc. to remain in the moment, but it doesn’t always work so well. The one thing that does, however, is nature–hiking, biking and just sort of being. I think it’s just easier there somehow…
