This week Rink Rats takes a rest stop, time to recharge and get a better perspective on life. In this world of I-this and 200 channels one should stop and rest. Many of us think we stop and rest, but do we really?
A rest stop can be a ten minute walk during the work day, a long weekend to visit family, a visit to your local park or garden to take in the beauty, an hour in your local library, simply a rest stop is time to relax and be yourself. No sucking up to your boss, significant other, kids – just suck up to you.
Put the email away, no Facebook, Twitter, Nightly News, office politics, for ten minutes, ten hours, ten days, or ten months – just take the time you need.
So Rink Rats this week is taking a rest stop. We hope you do to.
