Default Relaxation and recuperation

Today is my first day's vacation for the Christmas season. Ive taken the "luxury" of closing my practice for 14 days. This is my method of coping with potential stressors involved in the professional of psychotherapy. I will be visiting the opera a few times, going out for the occasional meal with my spouse, sleeping longer, jogging more regularly and listening to some of the audiotapes and video material - several on counselling and therapy - that I have collected during the last few months.
I would be very interested in how other therapists cope with the "innate" pressures related to the psychotherapy profession. At some stage Id like to get an article published in this area, so any material would be useful.
Happy Christmas everyone, and remember to remember yourself and your personal needs in therapy!
