Take a vacation from the world for a day. Yes, take time off your regular busy schedule and breathe for a day. Turn your cellphone off. And your laptop. Close your eyes. Take a breather. We're entitled to personal days, and if you haven't taken time off in a very long time, now is the time to do so. Life is too short to spend all of our time working round the clock with no personal time for ourselves. You cell phone will still be there when you turn it back on 24 hours later (okay let's do 12 hours if 24 hours seems a long time). Let's aim to do it this coming week. Take a breather and relax. Do it. This week.


"One day you will wake up and there wont be any more time to do the things you've always wanted. Do it now."

---- Paul Coelho
