Lately, in my quest for a little more balance, I’ve become acutely aware of how much time I spend tied to my desk all day. It’s not unusual (enter: Tom Jones) for me to sit there, locked into email and writing and editing and… before I know it, it’s been 5 hours and I haven’t even stopped to pee.
That got me to thinking… everyone needs little breaks throughout the day. Whether you’re tied to a desk or spend your days chasing your kids, we all have those moments where we need a major mommy time out!
