As much as vacation is about rest and relaxation, eating food I’m not used to and having one or two (or ten) margaritas can leave me feeling a bit yucky the next day. To top it off, as much as I love the beach, I’ve never been able to sit on it all day because I get a bit antsy – even with a good book in my lap. An early morning beach-vacation workout before the sun is high in the sky (and before I eat breakfast) leaves me feeling refreshed and relaxed and better able to enjoy a day on the sand.
I realize that “action-oriented” has a stale corporate connotation, something you’d place in the “Skills and Interests” section of your résumé, or a trait you’d discuss with a boss during an annual performance review. But before you groan, hear me out! There is actually something to it.
But first, what exactly is action-orientation?
