Are you a believer that traveling means to be in motion and doing nothing is to be still and that both cannot be done together? Irrespective of how much we want to separate ourselves from the grind and plan a weekend getaway or short vacations to nearby places, we seem to carry with us a long list of things that we could do on the vacation. Relax, surrender your senses to calm and defeat stress by indulging in the actual pleasure of a vacation by doing nothing. We bring to you a list of holiday destinations that will guarantee to urge you in to ‘doing’ nothing and benefit you both mentally and physically.
Do- Nothing Sattal
Visit Sattal, and all lingering thoughts that you must take work with you even on a do nothing vacation, will disappear. Time almost stands still here, yet despite all your apprehensions the world is functioning even when you have decided to stop for a while. Enjoy and soak in the viridian expanses in front of you without doing anything else. Listen to the sounds of chuckling waters or the excited chirps of the myriad varieties of birds instead of running a million thoughts in your head. Realize the importance of the present moment and hold close the laughter and joy of the day.The placidity of Sattal is reinforced when you stay at V Resorts. The ambience and feel of the place provides encouragement to actually do nothing – imagine being able to view the ravishing outdoors from the lazy comfort of your cozy bed. Take a deep breath – you are getting close to mastering the art of doing nothing
Do- Nothing Ramgarh
Take a ‘real’ vacation this time – go to nearby Ramgarh where choosing to be still is one of the first options. Realize the value of yourself and your loved ones when you decide on the importance of doing nothing. Banish all thoughts of guilt and soak in the picturesque surroundings or take a bite in to the many different varieties of juicy fruits. V Resorts is a great place to stay while here since the well-manicured premises takes your mind off, of everything and anyone who bothers you. When you are in an environment that allows you to do nothing but listen to your own thoughts and heart, you will not have the time for anything to annoy you. Be still and enjoy the luxuriant silence that allowed even greats like Rabindranath Tagore and Mahadevi Verma pen some of their best works.
Do- Nothing Pauri
A quiet and untouched hill station is your ideal choice for a doing nothing vacation. Pauri revives the innocence of childhood where living was easier, more natural and the pace was happier and slower. It reminds one of the times where the tiniest of joys made us smile and nothing expensive was needed to make our lives better. Pauri takes the pressure off. It allows you to maximize the benefits of your vacation by encouraging you to slow down and even stop to a point of doing nothing. Stay at V Resorts to complement this feel – they are completely attuned to the idea of their guests doing nothing and will actually make you feel comfortable with it.
Do- Nothing Rajaji National Park
You might try really hard to sit back and relax but city life punishes you for it. This might spill over to your vacation where you want some form of physical activity. However, if you are bent towards being overly aggressive, competitive and must indulge in activities, visit Rajaji National Park. The lush dense forest, the majestic march of the pachyderms, the synchronized calling of the wild beasts and many species of birds – give you enough to do and yet you are not really ‘doing’ anything. Let the wild activities and the gushing of the River Ganges, be the centerpiece of your time. To be in the heart of the Park, stay at V Resorts that sits nestled in the green folds of the forest and allows you time to ‘indulge’ in these ‘activities’ from the comfort of your lounging space within the resort. Experience it first-hand
Do- Nothing Narkanda
Narkanda is energizing due to its placid and calm locale. The sheets of white after a heavy snowfall remind you of how you miss the cool white sheets in summer that allow you to rest. The rosy pink cherry and apple blossoms in summer remind you of how much you miss nature since you live amongst brick and mortar premises back in the city. You will want nothing more than to do nothing but sit back and soak it all in. A great place to stay in this region is V Resorts that provide you with modern comforts and happy staff to take care of your needs and step back and let you indulge in ‘doing nothing’. Get your mind off work and the stress of it – isn’t that why you have opted to take a vacation here?
