My Trip To Odisha- A Visit To GopalPur Beach(Berhampur)

You all must have known about my recent vacation of Odisha if you are following me on Instagram. That was a long break and during that vacation I got know how badly I needed such break. Last year was a restless one. I and my family spent some tense and terrific days during my husband‘s illness. I always trust my Almighty God but still, an uneasiness and tension had surrounded me ever since. We had to visit doctors every 2-3 months. The treatment is still going on but thankfully he has recovered well. After a long and unwanted break from blogging, I started my work in May and worked hard without taking a break. I got a lot of responsibilities and duties after that which I tried to fulfil, not ignoring my work at the same time.

If you are a full-time blogger, you can understand my situation well. If you are not a blogger, you will be surprised to know that blogging is harder than doing a 9 to 5 job. There are plenty of works which a blogger has to do alone. Thinking about the next posts, taking ideas, clicking pictures, writing, editing and then working on all your social media platforms all are so time to take and tiring. If you have some sort of a team along, you are lucky but if you are alone like me, you get exhausted after some time.

Life had been so busy for me and I needed time to replenish leaving my worries behind me. When doctors allowed my hubby to travel, we planned that vacation.

I have already discussed the reason for choosing this place for my holiday in my previous post Here. Though the weather was so sweaty and hot but believe me, I enjoyed a lot. There was a concern about my husband health in my mind but still, this break gave me a lot of energy and made me free from all tension and anxiety. During that time I knew what is the importance of a holiday. I think we all need a break from our daily routine. In this post, I want to talk about the things I felt during this vacation and why a holiday is must for all of us.

I spent a valuable time with my family

While working, and with other duties, you tend to compromise on your relationships, especially within your family. Being a blogger, I have to spend a lot of time on my PC or cell phone. Even when I’m with my family members, these things always disturb all of us. When you are on vacation, you spend a quality time only with your family. The actual quality time is that when you are with your family, there are no distractions like phone, iPad and TV. You need to chat with your family and spend a fun time. Vacation is the best time when you are free from all other tension. You can talk to your family and make the plans for the future.

You must have noticed, I posted just a few pics from my vacation on Instagram. I can post pictures of every moment of my vacation like others but I kept myself totally far away from my cell phone and I’m satisfied with my decision. Vacations are your ideal investment as travelling together is the best way to build relationships. Don’t you think so?

Gave me relief from stress

As I said above, how tensed we were in all those days. No one can know the fear and anxiety my family experienced but now we all are feeling fresh and energised. This vacation completely refreshed me. I came out from all fears and anxiety.

Made me happier

Vacation makes you happier no doubt about it. It becomes more enjoyable if all things are planned before. The best thing about this vacation is that we had planned everything before and it made this trip easy and convenient. If you are planning a trip, book your tickets, hotel or resort first. Check all about the place where you are planning to visit. I was excited about visiting Odisha and took all the information from the internet already. Visiting the places you desire for a long time will make you definitely happier and this is exactly what happened to me.

Made me more productive at work thereafter

After returning from the vacation, I am finding myself more focused at work. New thoughts and ideas coming to mind more than before. Actually, it’s happened that not only our bodies but our mind also feels tired with the same kind of routine. Too much work without break brings to ill temper, poor decision making, disappointment bad health. After vacation, I reverse all that and come back with good focus, energy and productivity.

Made me healthier

When you feel happiness from inside, when your mind is fresh and positive, you will feel healthier. I have started my workout after a few months of break. I’m feeling so relaxed, relieved and refreshed.

Now we all have decided to go for vacations regularly.  I will suggest all of you take a break from your daily routine work. Believe me, even a short break will do wonder for your coming days. You will find yourself more focused, productive and energetic!

Coming to my outfit:

These pics are from our first visit to Gopalpur Beach. That was the very first day of Berhampur. We first decided to see that famous beach. I wanted to keep my outfit comfortable so I selected this lovely pattern cotton kurta. I paired it with a pair of a burgundy coloured palazzo. The best part of this kurta is that it’s not only comfy and lightweight but also very stylish too. The fitting is loose and ideal for sweaty weather. I accessorised this outfit with some lovely rose gold accessories and finished it with a pair of low heels sandal and handbag. The best part about this beach was that it wasn’t crowded like the other famous beaches of India, we were able to have a great time in peace! We all took off our foot wears just after reaching on the beach and enjoyed with bare feet on the sands πŸ™‚

I’m wearing:

Kurta – Anouk

Palazzo – W For Women

Sandals – Catwalk

Bag – Lavie

Watch – Daniel Wellington

Bracelet – Lulu & Sky

Earrings – Lulu & Sky

    You’re so right, blogging can be so draining and tiring. Coming up with blogging ideas is a never ending work, unless we’re careful it can take over our lives. We all have families duties and responsibilities, the older we get, the more we are responsible for others and ourselves. Every relationship is something we build and develop daily, and when we’re focused on our work, even if it is work we enjoy, that can cause us to be less focused on our family and social life, which can result in feeling guilty and becoming stressed.

    Travelling with our loved ones is a great way to spent some quality time with our loved ones. Sometimes recharging our batteries with a vacation is just what we need. Travelling can be a great way to relax, to set our mind at ease and to live in a moment. Last year was quite stressful for me too, I’m still recovering from all the stresses. This beach looks like a lovely place to visit, even on a hot day. I love beaches!

    Your outfit is beautiful. I really like your kurta, it looks great! Such a pretty print. I also really like your red lipstick. You look perfect!

      Agree with you Ivana, blogging is only my passion. I work hard just because I love it but it’s true that sometimes our work and passion can cause us to be less focused on our family and social life and we feel guilty. By taking a break, you can give some great moments to your family and yourself. This vacation really recharges me and I feel it improve my work productivity too.
      Thanks, my dear for this lovely comment.
      Have a great day!

    These pictures are beautiful! Your smile is radiant. Yes, we all certainly need vacations. They’re not only fun but refresh us in valuable ways. I take more vacations now than I did earlier in my career and find they improve my work-productivity when I return. Great post!
