By Jason Basson and Steve Marais
The countdown to your annual leave feels like Chinese water torture, doesn't it? It started out pleasant enough, but becomes fairly excruciating the closer you get to the finish line. Don't be a prisoner of your aspirations. Happiness is not something you can or should postpone for the holidays. As Abraham Maslow once said, "the ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness." Don't wait for this year (or your sanity) to come to an abrupt end before you venture outdoors to see or do something interesting. Life waits for nobody. Go now! Be happy! Be vital! And make sure you're dressed appropriately for wherever you may find yourself.
