Chill Out

Busy, busy, busy ... why is everyone always trying to make you DO something? Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all, and some places seem perfectly designed for ... well, nothing. Try “being” rather than “being busy”, and you might even discover another side of where or even who you are. So hang your hammock, grab a pina colada and kick back.
