One of the reasons we invest in property is to have more time off to relax – more white sands and clear water and less time in traffic.
But what is the secret to having a vacation that truly relaxes you?
A recent study shows there are 4 factors that gives you a great holiday break, which leaves you with a long-term feeling of rejuvenation.
1. Relaxation 2. Control 3. Mastery. 4 Detachment from work.
The authors of the study found that breaks that have all 4 are the equivalent of a nutritious healthy meal. Breaks that aren’t are like eating a fast food meal full of empty calories.
Relaxation is straight forward, as is mental detachment from work! (No checking work emails!)
Mastery is all about something active that you enjoy and get into the zone with….It might be surfing, golf, origami….something that you find yourself completely absorbed…the time just flies.
And control is all about having control over your time and your environment (hard when you’ve got young kids!)
So, next time you’re planning a vacation, try and bundle as many of these into it as possible so you get the best possible long-term rejuvenation.
And even better, what if you could have mini-vacations and days off every couple of months. That’s the lifestyle of a ‘fast-track’ property investor like Nhan Nguyen.

How to Go Fishing on a Monday
“So now that I have achieved my financial freedom, I can do whatever I want, wherever I want.
I love fishing and love to get out in the water when the sun is shining.
And I can do it on a Monday, Tuesday or a Wednesday any day, really!
When the fish are biting, I am out there!
And, I love travelling and spending time with my family, we can go overseas.
And we can go for a 2, 4, 6 or may be 8 weeks of the year even, because I can do what I want with my time.
And, I have done it through small developments made easy.
My students and I can make lots of profit, large chunks of cash, in a short period. And we create it in a way that I believe has very little risk – because we often using very little of our own cash.
And, I can show you how to do it too, so you can potentially create financial freedom at my new Small Developments Made Easy evening event in Brisbane.
