Day 7 – You made it through the first week!

by StephBuckwalter on June 12, 2011

This is day 7. If you have been working really hard, take a break or do something small. I personally am trying to cut back on my Sunday activities. I just started this about a month ago and I have found it truly rejuvenating. Sunday may not be your day of rest, but I encourage you to find a day each week to rejuvenate. Remember, we are in this for the long haul!

    Just rested and enjoyed some time with family today. It was a nice reward for all the hard work during the week.

    Definitely quantity counts. It took me a long time to get to the quality part of a room.

    Spent 15 minutes cleaning out old emails. Still have way too many to go through so it will definitely take more of these spurts of work to get through them all.
