As I dip my toes in the water of the spa, the words of the Dalai Lama echo in my head: “Spend some time alone everyday.” It is the first time, I decide to take time away from my daily tasks, from my families routines, the piled up chores, the weekly activities, from being busy and surrounded by a constant demand and now, when my feet touch the water, reality hits. I am alone and will be for my stay – the only company I will receive is the spa therapist, perhaps later in the day even a masseuse, to loosen up the tight muscles, even calming my skin and senses.
