Change your routine, change your life

It is so easy for life to become routine. We are a busy society and spend our days taking care of family, friends and responsibilities. Hopefully, somewhere in that day we have also squeezed in a few minutes to take care of ourselves. We often become so engrossed in the routine of the day that before we know it we are doing the same things over and over, day after day. Then we sit back and wonder why our life may be boring, when the reason is staring us right in the face.

  3. I absolutely love this! I find myself doing this a lot as well. When I leave work, I usually take the same road.
