get away

Today I am leaving for an annual conference for School Counselors. It's always a nice feeling to get away for a little bit, mingle with professional peers, learn some new info., be reminded of some ideas I might have forgotten, and get out of my routine for a few days.

If you aren't able to get away for a conference or a mini vacation, think about how you can create a similar experience without leaving town:

*go to a coffee shop and read up on professional journals or books you are interested in
*turn off the computer and phone and pop in a yoga dvd at home
*spend a day at the spa getting a mani, pedi, and massage
*participate in an on-line teleclass
*change up your routine
*drive a different route to work
*go out to eat at a restaurant you've never been to
*enjoy yourself and those you are around
