Tip Hotelization

Sometimes when I feel stressed out and overwhelmed, I check myself in to a hotel for one or two nights. I call this "hotelization." It's like a mini-hospitalization. It doesn't, of course, make my problems go away, but I get a temporary respite from my stressors and I come back to my daily life refreshed and with new perspective. An inexpensive hotel room is well worth the price if it keeps me from falling apart completely and having to check into the hospital.
