This year, when it came time to start planning a family vacation, which is the one yearly ritual that has not fallen by the wayside, you wanted to do something special. You wanted your kids to see that relaxation was possible, and that life could be far more laid-back and easy going than what they were accustomed to. However, the trip was as it much for you as it was for the kids, but you decided you would use the idea of the family holiday as a teaching moment. This year there would be no busy theme parks, Disney World or city breaks. You booked tickets to Jamaica, and the family was going to practice the art of relaxing.
Let’s Get Together and Feel All Right

Taking your afternoon swim in the Caribbean Sea, you feel as if you have somehow redeemed yourself. Your work is too hectic for you to make it home on time for dinner every night, but you have shown your family that you know how to relax. More importantly, you have taught your kids a vital lesson about the art of taking a holiday. You wonder how long the afterglow will last once you get home.
