“Few vacations are as gratifying as those devoted to personal growth.”

- Pat Koch Thaler


When you’re in vacation mode, you find it hard to get anything else done. Though I’m sitting here in my cubicle with my fingers on my keyboard, my mind has taken flight. I’m sunk deep in a cozy beach chair listening to the waves rolling over with glee as a warm breeze hugs me from head to toe. And my fingers, instead, are clutching a summer novel that I’m about to get lost in.

Ah, summer hasn’t snuck away from us yet. It’s only August, so we still have time to plan our escape, take those needed days off from work, slip away from all those nagging responsibilities, bury our to-do lists from plain sight, and embark on a peaceful retreat.

Whether you’re visiting family and friends, exploring new destinations, or just hiding out in your backyard, remember to bring one of these Hay House treasures so your mind and soul can join you on your retreat.
