Chapter 8, Page 7, Book 19

A vacation is what you take when you can not longer take what you’ve been taking.

Earl Wilson

August 7th - Let your mind take a little summer vacation !

A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.

Robert Orben

Sometimes it’s good to take a vacation to get your head on straight. Taking a break helps you to stay motivated, creative and efficient. Down time is essential to our performance. Changing scenery and getting away from our usual routines does wonders for our brains.

They say that best time to take a break is when you don’t have time for it. But taking a break doesn’t have to be about going away. It can be a matter of simple sitting down and being still for 10 minutes. Or you could take a break away from the routine and do something different. Even a walk in the park can give our brains a break.

Being thankful is another way to cope with stress. Even if you’re just thankful for surviving the day, it can really improve your happiness and sense of fulfillment. Thankfulness redirects our attention from our difficulties to the benefits we enjoy.

Vacation used to be a luxury, but in today’s world it has become a necessity.

Vacations, even mini ones, are good for us in so many different ways! We're going to take a 1 day one this Saturday over Sunday to a different area of Arizona. Should be fun!

I can remember when a vacation was necessary. Now since we have 6 Saturdays and one Sunday. shucks a vacation is still necessary (for some reason) and fun.
Sending love from over here and hoping your day was great.
