As I’m writing this, I’m sitting outside in a Florida room, by the pool, which is in front of a lake listening to birds chirp near green, green trees and palm trees. I am seriously living the life of my dreams. I don’t know how I got this blessed in life, and I have no intention of saying “Look at me! See how awesome my life is!?!” It’s more to say how wonderfully grateful I am to have this experience not once, but 3 years in a row! And to encourage you that no matter what your vacation is—weather a month, a week, an hour, 5 minutes—to take time to unplug and forget about Instagram, Facebook, and what’s for dinner, and just sit still for a little bit. You will find more long-term and short-term benefits than you realize.
Now, take a deep breath. Hold it. And let it out.
And have a great day.
