-Wanda M. Toby
Stop and find a spot and pause. It does not even matter if it is quiet as long as you still your mind. Give yourself some time, start with 1-5 minutes. Close your eyes and take a few deep breath, inhale, exhale. Think about the ones you love, what they do to make you smile. Tell yourself you are awesome and you can do this. Think about how fortunate you are to be able to be. Take one to five minutes, then get up, shake it off, and get a move on. That little activity can help to balance you out and allow you to take your next step with new purpose and maybe a little bit more mental energy.
