Whenever I feel myself teetering on the edge of melt down I have to let everything go and rest. I have to say no to the incessant to-do list of life. Kind of like turning the "Open for Business" sign to, "Be back at 2:00. Sorry for the inconvenience" in my front window. I leave the demands to demand and the laundry piles to slide. I even let my personal ambitions wait in line while I take a siesta.
There is magic rejuvenation in a nap - even if it's for 15 minutes, wouldn't you agree? I can face almost anything after a rest.
