Every now and then, I like to indulge myself in a day of relaxation, by sleeping in late, not answering the phone or even charging my cell, surrounding myself with my laptop, my books and ignoring the outside world. Sometimes I don’t even bathe, comb my hair or brush my teeth.
The next day, I radiate. Maybe it has to do with a full day’s rest or just a well fed spirit, I don’t know but it works wonder even if it is a little lonely at the end of the day.
