Embracing Your Lunch Break: Part 1

For many of us, we have the best intentions in the morning of getting up before work and getting a long list of tasks done before leisurely walking out the door. That happens about 5 percent of the mornings I have somewhere to be before 10 a.m. It is usually a whirlwind of getting dressed […]
