Breathe



Originally uploaded by from a second story.

Unplug.

Look around you. Talk to someone in person. Go to dinner. Get outside while it's still warm. Slow down. Refuse to worry. People watch. Jump. Enjoy life for a moment. Smile. Talk to a stranger. Get to know a friend better. Escape. Lighten up. Read. Count your blessings and be thankful. Relax. Watch a storm pass. Walk. Run. Laugh. Listen to someone. Pay attention. Write. Be calm.

Breathe.

If you're not doing some of these things throughout your day, you're moving too fast or you're plugged in way too much. Slow down and breathe. You have a life to live.

I know, it's great isn't it? The "Hideout" where it is filmed is a real music venue in Chicago.
