Back to Work

Back to work.......I taught classes today for the first time in over a week.  My students missed me, I missed them.  But the break did me good.  A change of pace, and scenery was just what I needed......sunshine and the ocean were good meds.  I came back a better teacher.......and that is how it should be.

It is easy to blow off a vacation or, time......lots of excuses.  But, the thing is you don't have to take a week off, or even go anywhere.  A day or two, a change of routine, or maybe just rest.......a staycation......downtime with friends......a day spent on your favorite afternoon in the park or at the zoo or museum........

Take some time to do or not do, something that is not your ordinary day.  Your body will thank you, your mind will love you......those around you will notice a difference.  Get out your calendars, pick a date or two.....then take a break.....or vacation.....or just a couple of hours or weekend.  You will be amazed and'll look younger.......or at least feel it.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. I am doing the same thing-taking a much needed break from real life and going on a short holiday with three grandgirls and their Mom. Can't wait. Glad YOU had a good time- xo Diana

  2. Glad you got your much deserved rest and vacation...I meant to tell you how lovely you are looking in the family shot from the cruise!
    I'm sure your students were thrilled to have you back!

  3. Some of the best vacations I've ever taken were to absolutely nowhere. These days just turning off all electronic (plugged and wireless) apparatuses is a wonderful break. -- Jan

  5. What is it you are teaching? Yoga? Meditation?
    Remember when you were younger, going on vacation. Party all night, drink all day, sit in the sun, get burnt, drain all your energy. Have no money left. Come home...

    A BRAND NEW PERSON!!! Tanned, refreshed, invigorated. Gung-ho!
    Amazing what a vacation can do for a person.
    Glad you're back safe. With all those accidents and bugs happening with cruise ships lately! ; )
