Take A Day Off From Work

Today is Saturday, the day to stay in bed as late as you'd like, leisurely sipping your first cup of coffee.  Today you can actually enjoy eating your breakfast sitting like a human being at the dining room table instead of shoving a bagel down your throat while cramming into a commuter train or subway.  Saturday is the day you can lay around in your sweats or PJ's like a lazy slug should you be so inclined.

Saturday is precious to most of us.  Of course if you have household chores to do, you may want to consider getting out of bed while it's still daylight (before the supermarket and TJ Maxx closes).  For me, the beauty of Saturday is giving my "work brain" a rest.  I allow myself to slow down and put my work head on the shelf.

I think all of us need to recharge our batteries because Monday rolls around soon enough.  It takes energy to be at your work best and face a day filled with all kinds of work (or lack of) stress.  Do yourself a favor and give yourself permission to chill so you can face the week refueled.

"For fast-acting relief, try slowing down."
