"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

Making time to Relax!

Lisa Cutforth - Friday, May 15, 2009
Taking a break! With the busy lives we lead and the sense of time moving faster and faster and this increased efficiency of this modern world that allows us to do more and more, it is crucial to make time to relax: to SET ASIDE TIME to stop and just be! So, give yourself permission to take a break. Set aside some down time this week, schedule it in to your diary, especially all you executives, business owners, health care workers, mums and workaholics out there... stop... chill... for as long as you can. If you are worried that you don't have the time to do it, rest assured that the time off will leave you feeling refreshed and regenerated and ready to go, you will be much more motivated to get stuck in and get back into your work!
