It’s Friday, so Just Relax™

“When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?”

—Ralph Marston

Be honest, you had to think about it for a moment, didn’t you? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. You’re part of a workforce that must create, innovate, and perfect—all before breakfast. But that breakneck pace can be anguish when it comes to your well-being. You get stressed, your work suffers, and negativity spreads. Nobody wins. Luckily there’s a better way. Instead of racing through life, slow down and take in the scenery. Focus on your surroundings: the sights, the smells, the people…all of it. You’ll see the world with fresh eyes; every day will feel like an adventure. And you’ll be a healthier, happier human because of it.

Time to relax

Enjoy your holidays 🙂
