If you can, I think everyone should spend a night in a hotel just a bit too fancy, and eat at a restaraunt on the water and sit in the spa, and just pretend that’s what life is like for a moment.
Eat fresh seafood by the ocean, drink a local winery’s glass of wine and wake up early in the morning to feel the sand under your feet.
But I suppose the balance comes into play when you have to find joy in regular life too. Joy needs to come from your errand filled day or your quiet day at home or your early night in. Read a new book, listen to a new song, message an old friend, and ignite joy into every day.
