tranquility … where do you find it?

“The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.”
James Allen

When was the last time you took a personal break, a break from all the noise, commotion and clutter that seems to attract itself to you?   When have you just taken time to turn off the noise, all the noise and just find yourself in a tranquil place.

Find five minutes each day for a peace break – no email – no TV – no entertainment – no reading – no doing – just relax and let your mind center on something peaceful.   Just for five minutes.   See what a difference it can make in your day.   This is “You” time, personal, private and thoughtful time.

Some ideas to reduce stress in your life can be found here.

    Have a great Thanksgiving weekend. So much to be grateful for.
