Lisa Cummings Karen's Stylist

Me Time Moments

Need a break at work? Take five minutes and think about something that makes you happy and brings you joy. Perhaps it’s looking at the sun kiss the ocean during a sunset, the time you spend with family, memories of riding your bike as a kid, those stole moments relaxing in a bath or shower, or maybe, it’s simply that FREE latte your co-worker gave you last week.

Whatever it is…take a moment, tune out everything around you and really focus on what brings happiness to your life. During your thoughts, breathe in and out slowly through your noise, massage your temples and smile. You can do this anytime you need to refresh your mind and soul with positive energy during the workday. Take the joy of your thoughts with you through out your day.
