Hoping to get LOTS of homework done today, as I am feeling a bit behind. The previous two weeks had been so hectic that I felt the need to really slow down. Maybe that's OK? After all, this landed in my InBox, too:

Awareness Through Downshifting
"Vacation is what you take when you can't take what you've been taking any longer." - Lion from Wizard of Oz
Often our first reaction to a stressful situation is to overcompensate and overwork to overcome whatever it is. Sometimes though, the best thing you can do it step away, take a breath, and come back to tackle the problem with a clear head. Replacing important things in your life with work only causes anxiety to build up--not to mention that it takes the joy out of life. Vacation does not have to mean physically leaving your everyday life and jet setting to the beach. Whatever relaxes you, brings more clarity, or calms your mind during times of stress can certainly be enough to rejuvenate! When logic tells you to quicken your pace and pile on the extra work, yet your heart is reminding you of the meaningful time you are neglecting with family, friends, and yourself, it's time to slow down. Often letting off on the gas for a period of time can compose and refocus your mind.
