Road trip is one of the solutions to life’s daily routine. Go and explore!

Road trip is the solution to life’ daily routine. Yes, this is definitely true on my part. For me, when the household tasks are becoming mind-numbing, I immediately tell my husband “Let us go out and have a road trip somewhere.”

My husband will immediately ask “Where are we going?” My answer is often “I don’t know. Let’s just go out.”

Being a mother is overwhelming. There are times I couldn’t think sensibly. When I overheard a conversation that her children are driving her crazy, I realized I am not alone! Thank God my boys are not driving me crazy, the chores do! Solution: Get out of the rut and do something different.

I am the kind of person who likes to travel. I enjoy going to places that I haven’t been before. I get excited even if I already have seen the place. The memories of the visit bring back a smile to my face. Every time I come back, I see something different. I see a new beauty to it.

For example, these huge trees at Picnic Point were not even noticed before. When we had a stopover, I got mesmerized by their stillness. I like how dark green the leaves were. As if they are telling me, take a picture of us! Post us on Instagram! Of course, I did and with filters.

Moreover, nature is a sight to behold. I couldn’t get enough of it. It soothes my eyes. The cobwebs in my mind were blown away by the breeze. I know I am melodramatic right now.  The views made my chaotic mind go still and just went blank. It was meditation at its finest with a fantastic backdrop.

I watched movies showing horrifying and funny road trips of families. That is just Hollywood. As a mother of 12, 10 and 6-year-old boys, this is a bonding time moment for us.

One mother told me that I have to enjoy their presence now while they are still around and need me. In the future, I could be one of the mums begging for their time and attention.  Wow, that escalated quickly. I was just talking about road trips.

Raising three boys is a huge responsibility. Going on a road trip is both a mini-vacation and a cheaper version of therapy for a mum whose household duties are unlimited.

This is my strategy to overcome the I-had-enough-of-this-feeling. Tell me the place you went to that relaxed your mind or brought you the Zen mode.
