Holiday-What Happens to Us?
When one goes for a holiday, there is change. The change is in many terms – climate, surrounding, culture, food, people etc. These all stimulate senses, intellect and emotions. Its a different experience. Also, it is different from what one does in a routine life.
The 3rd important thing that happen is that the time is so much structured. Even if we have not planned anything day wise, the fact that we are off for some days and just out to enjoy it as holidays, itself structures the time.
In this way, the basic hungers – stimulation hunger, recognition hunger and structure hungers are so well fulfilled. Tell me now, why won’t we feel so refreshed after every return from the holiday; and why are we so desperate to have the holiday?
To further expand this, it gets applicable for any routine change activity that we plan to do like meeting friends, partying, movie, eating out etc. x
