Today, at least three times (maybe schedule them on your calendar), take a mini-vacation. Pause. Let go of running over tasks and responsibilities, let go of goals and evaluation, let go of opinions and planning. Just be. Soak in the details of your present place and moment. Be with yourself, un-layered by all the roles you play in life. Don't demand anything of yourself or others.
