So I'd like to invite my fellow writer friends and readers to do something good for mind, body, soul, muse, and eyes:
* Stop and relax for at least ten minutes. No need to time it. It's more than likely you'll go a little longer than ten minutes and really need it to do so.
* During this ten minutes (or longer) stay away from the internet. It is amazing to realize how much we are tethered to the web by our computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones. Don't cheat your relaxation time by tapping away on your smartphone's touchscreen while lying comfy in your hammock. Really, just let it go for a few minutes.
In and out.
A steady rhythm
The holiday season is a wonderful time for giving and sharing goodwill toward men. But it has also transitioned into a time of consumerism, commercialism and bringing out the biggest and baddest our material society can come up with. Take a hint from Lazy Days kitty and allow yourself to relax for one brief moment. For one brief moment, remember the world will keep spinning if you decide to treat yourself to a moment of relaxation.
Your body just might thank you with...
*An extra ounce of rejuvination in your mind.
*A rested body ready to tackle that extra set of stairs.
*A soul feeling a little lighter and more in a giving mood, less the Grinch mood.
*Eyes eager to devour that extra short story a friend sent to your Kindle/Nook/Sony e-reader (etc.)
What would you suggest as another option of giving yourself a moment to breathe?
