Alone with just a knife and salt, in the middle of nowhere even only for couple of days. Even after a week of survival training by the professionals puts me in a deep consolation and desolation. It has become a whole time luxury of an amazing personal retreat to me. It gives me ability to set priorities, being organized, aware of my goals, and appreciate everything more in life.
