Most people feel that they have to go to the spa to feel tranquil.

task and answer continuous Emails. We need to just be sometimes.
This occurs so much that we don’t ever give ourselves a chance to
play or to take a much needed break. This, over time, can hinder
productivity and make you feel very unfulfilled.
So, take the time today to read O’Hara’s book. And create that
special retreat for yourself. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate place.
But it has to be a consistent and quiet place that you go to when
you need to relax. And trust me, we all need and MUST relax.
So take a breather today. And don’t forget to close your eyes
and re-balance your energies and recharge your batteries. Just take
a few minutes to breathe!
