The alarm goes off at 6am, then 6.15, 6.30, 6.45 and now 7.00am. Just to ensure you do get up, it's a rush around the house for what to wear; what to think; prepare; who to call...and oops...there is no clean underwear.

The traffic is crazy; the trains and buses are running late...time ticks fast and you worry. Check Facebook; check Twitter; read the paper or listen to the radio - there's some terrible news. You forgot to eat breakfast, and so your mind turns to food.

Whether you're working, shopping, cleaning or need to study - you always seem to be in such a hurry. Check your bank account, think of what day it is today, and which bills need to be paid.

There are problems at work. Nothing is running smoothly, or you're at school about to play a game thinking I sure hope someone chooses me.

Someone is complaining, you fix that. Sit down to lunch but think of training because you are fat. Need new clothes; need a new car; don't earn enough; feel unappreciated and underestimated. You began the week with goals, but now your motivation has faded. You feel tired and jaded.

You wish that you could just quit. You wish that you could run. You yearn for more time, and a little less stress - as well as much more fun. The weekend has just begun, and yet you feel withered and worn. Get home and notice that you need to mow the lawn.

What to cook for dinner you ponder, and how to entertain the kids. When does it ever stop you wonder, you need time to let it all sink in.

Stop. Take time to breathe, to rest, and to play. There is no need to do it all in one day. We need to take a time out every once in a while in order to refresh. And this is not only ok, but it's what is best. Stop and breathe. Close your eyes. Stop and smell the roses, and realise that there is more to life than all of these tedious tasks. Stop and bask in the things that go unnoticed as you busy about your day. Stop worrying for a moment, and feel that all is going to be ok.
