Take a break

Many of us are always going, going, going. Appointments, meetings, deadlines, chores, projects, dates, events, games, practice, etc. The once a year vacation or occasional weekend getaway is not enough. Each day, take a few minutes to take time for yourself. Most of you know this already, so take it as a friendly reminder. Find a quiet place to pray. You know, I’ll always say pray, but you should listen more than you talk. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God.” I found this little spot in the warehouse at work. Once you find your spot, you can:

  • reflect and meditate (meditate does not mean worry… bad idea)
  • read
  • write in a journal

Ok, some of you journal on your phone, but no texting, no FaceBooking, and no tweeting every minute, telling your followers what you are meditating about. Please don’t. The point is to take a break for yourself. Get some thoughtful perspective. Start with 5 minutes a day and go from there.
