Leisure and Vacation.
In Jesolo, naturally! 😉
Today, I would like to take you on a journey through the nuances of leisure, a term that often carries a negative aura but can actually conceal much more than one might imagine.
What we consider as modern leisure, characterized by lazy indolence and hours spent solving enigmatic crossword puzzles under a beach umbrella, is only a small part of what this word truly signifies.
In an era where the Western world dictates a high tempo of productivity, it is fascinating to look back at ancient Rome, where leisure had an entirely different meaning and soul.
In this context, “otium” was like a gentle melody of interruption amidst the demanding acts of life.
It was the breath a Roman noble took while distancing himself from the hectic bustle of the city, immersing himself in the green expanses of the countryside, dedicating himself to studies, reflections, and intellectual creations.
An intense creative break in your hectic life.
Come here to Hotel Germania to recharge your energies, which we refer to as batteries: Yet, to fill a battery with new energy, one does not just let it rest on a piece of furniture, but connects it to a power source to replenish it with fresh vitality.
Leisure, much like your vacation today, resembles a wonderful excursion into nature or an intense creative break.
It’s our way of connecting to our personal ‘power source,’ nourishing our soul, and strengthening the mind.
Things we need to approach our future projects with clarity, determination, and clear ideas.
Without this precious energy that you recharge here at Germania, you might have great ideas but lack the resilience, strength, coherence, or the ability to look far ahead.
Healing the soul and regenerating positive thoughts.
Today, idleness is all too often mistaken for apathy, but instead, it should be a practice cultivated with utmost care.
Imagine turning it into an art form: like a gardener lovingly tending to their plants, we should nurture our idleness with activities that truly regenerate our body and mind.
My invitation is to challenge the traditional concept that idleness is synonymous with inactivity.
On the contrary, just like your eagerly awaited vacation, it’s an intentional act of self-care and soul nurturing.
And not just any soul, but… yours!
So, as we plunge into our well-deserved breaks and vacations here at Hotel Germania in Jesolo, let’s remember that idleness is not just that fleeting moment of leisure but a canvas on which we can paint with bright colors, creating moments of inspiration and genuine joy.
Therefore, dear friends of mine, embrace idleness, celebrate its diversity, and discover its true essence – because in the end, idleness, the vacation, is the key to truly feeling good.
May your idleness and your vacations always be enriching and refreshing.
Until the next intellectual adventure!
