My last holiday really started out as work. I am retired but do a limited amount of consulting and helping small organizations develop strategic plans, board development, etc. So it begin with me spending 2-1/2 days doing work....lots of hours crammed into that time. Since we were in an area near the ocean I decided that after the work was done I would stay around a couple of days to relax. I called and got a hotel right on the beach with a view of the ocean, did a little shopping, bought a couple of books and settled in...read, slept, ordered room service, listened to the waves and totally cleared by brain of everything.....just for a little while I was in the zone and it was wonderful.
