Take a Break

Take a Break

It seems I always have a long list of things I'd like to get done. Like many of you, I enjoy working, and I've got projects and hobbies I like to keep busy with too. Consequently, it isn't easy for me to take time off. Maybe taking some time to do nothing or to do something completely different is difficult for you too.

But all of us need to have some down time. We need to sit in the sun and read, or go skiing, play a round of golf, challenge a friend to a game of tennis or get a group of friends together and play a game of hockey, basketball or croquet.

Recreation does for us just what its name implies: it "re-creates" us. It recharges our batteries and refreshes us.

Just as we do the "spring cleaning" in our houses we need to spruce up our minds and our outlooks too. Doing so makes us more productive and puts us in a better state of mind--maybe even a better state of health.

So...........if you've been needing an excuse to take your "spring break" -- even if it's been decades since you've been a student -- here's your motivation.

Take a few days off from your regular routine, and enjoy things you might otherwise overlook. Refresh and recreate and have a particularly good spring.

God bless you.
