What do you do to find time to break away and breathe?
Spaaaaaaa. I love going to the massage, for a steam, soak or massage. It is so easy to just go-go-go, so I frequently schedule in weekly me time where I can take a breather. I also hit the pool at 5am which is like a moving meditation. No one can talk to you or interrupt, and it is just you and the water. Bliss.
