Today I flipped through my collection of recent blog posts and articles by other writers who focus on the importance of stepping back and taking time out.
I’ve picked three articles to share with you. You’ll find them in the Resources Of The Week section of this posting.
Think of it as my ‘Welcome to Spring and Fresh Ways of Doing Things’ gift.
Action: The articles are all great. But here’s my anti-overwhelm suggestion.
Spread them out. Read the first one today. Add a reminder to your calendar to read one each on Thursday and Friday.
By the time Saturday rolls around, launching us into a brand new season of the year, hopefully this combo of ideas will have inspired you to add a bit more pause to your life.
And that, my friends, will add a bit more spring to your step.
