12 Days of Christmas: Time for a Breather

On the sixth day of Christmas, my About guide gave to me, a reminder to take some time for family...

It's Saturday, and we have Christmas shopping to do and vacation plans to make. But it's Saturday, the first day of the weekend. There's fresh fallen snow calling out for fort making. I think we need to take a breather from the busy-ness of the season.

As you go about your errands and activities and parties, remember to take a moment to enjoy your family and relax. It doesn't need to be hours; it can simply be five minutes to connect with your kids. Or take time to spend by yourself -- a half hour to read a book or fit in exercise.

What are your favorite ways to unwind?
