Five tips to rejuvenate your love for hills and take it to new heights
Tip #1: You should relive the moments
You should try going back to the time you used to love going to hills, but you should try doing things uniquely this time. You might have to challenge yourself and go down the old town road; find something from the past that connects. On your way to the hill, you could play songs you used to listen to; you may start to remember things you might have forgotten and recognize the feelings you have felt. This time it is even better because you now know that it would have been worse if you had lost total connection. You start to remember how the solemnity of the hill made you thoughtful; it could be that the mountain has brought out the best ideas in you. You begin to remember how you were mesmerized by the hilly landscape the first time you came in contact. Now that you have reached the hill, all that goes in your mind is ‘how did you disconnect from the hill in the first place?’.
Tip #2: Take a break
Sometimes what you need is to miss the hill to fall in love with it again. You don’t have to rush anything; you should exercise patience. How to know that it is time to revisit the hill:
- When you stare at pictures of nature, and the first thing that comes to your mind is the hill, it may be time to revisit the mountain.
- When you watch a movie that connects to travel, your mind goes back to when you used to be on the hill.
- When you stare at sunrise, you can’t help but think about how you miss the sunrise and sunset at the hills.
As there are several types of love a human can feel, we would compare your love for the hill to that of a romantic relationship. Even in solid relationships, couples take time apart for different reasons such as mental health, work is taking up energy, long-distance relationships, etc. When things fall apart, it is time to take a break and review the relationship. But going on holiday and not doing it properly might result in the relationship ending. You have to be honest if you think it is a break from the hill you need. You should set some rules for the vacation so that you can come back to the hill; examples are:
- Give five minutes of your day to staring at a picture of the hill, or you mightn’t do anything related to hills for a while.
- When you go on trips, would you visit the hill or not during the break?
Taking a break would mean different things to different people, so you have to define yours. Some people opt to live in a mountain property as their primary residence and trawl to find holiday homes for sale.
Tip #3: Remember why?
Why did you go to the hill in the first place? What caught your attention about the hill?
- Did you feel like you were on top of the world at that time?
- Was it the view of the hill against the sun?
- Was it the fact that it constantly reminded you to be humble? The hill is taller than humans, which would help remind you of how small but mighty you are.
- Was it the quiet time you enjoyed alone at the hill?
Note down your reasons and take deep breaths. Slowly, you will find the reason to love the hills again, and you will be drunk in love this time.
Tip #4 Recognise what your love for the hill isn’t
To know what love is, you should identify what love doesn’t look like.
The love for the hill isn’t:
- You are going to the hill just to take pictures and post them on social media to show everyone that you are on vacation. Not that you shouldn’t take pictures, but that shouldn’t be the only or main reason to visit the hill.
- Doing it because your traveler friends are doing it, and you want to fit in.
If you’re going to rekindle your genuine love for the hill, then visit the hill because you want to. Love is all about your actions more than words, you could say you love the hill from now till eternity, but nothing changes. It is better to admit to what you are feeling now so that you can work on it.
Tip #5: Intentionality and Consistency
If you want to rekindle your love, then you have to become intentional about it. You don’t have to do the big things; you can try drawing a hill to remember or give to causes to help preserve hills. You could make a list of things to help you remember the hill. The consistent small efforts will matter more than one serious attempt all at once.
The bottom line
Love is more of action than words; if you are willing to rekindle your passion for the hills, then go for it with a lot of effort. Which of the tips did you find most helpful?
