If you drew a big circle on a piece of paper and I asked you to divide it up like a pie, each slice representing how you spend your time, would there be  nice big chunks of pie devoted to REST, RELAXATION, REFLECTION, RECREATION????  When I do this exercise with people the majority have way too much time devoted to work, chores and responsibilities and not enough time devoted to the four R’s( as said in the book The Inner Game of Stress by T. Gallwey).  Where is your balance?  We all maintain a certain amount of work, chores and responsibilities but it all must be balanced with time devoted to the four R’s. 

 How happy can you truly be if all you do is work and not play? 

 How fulfilled can you be if you run from place to place with no time for rest and relaxation?

How nourished can you be if you have spent no time in reflection of where you have been and where you hope to be?

We are happier, more satisfied and LESS STRESSED if we can take the time to rest, relax, reflect and PLAY.

When do you find yourself doing exactly what you want to be doing and never wanting it to end?  When does time stop for you?

Find more of that time for yourself; happiness and joy will follow.
