According to CNN,
Vacations are not only good for the soul, your family, your marriage...they're good for your health too. Studies show that women who take at least two vacations a year are 50 percent less likely to develop heart disease than those who go rarely or not at all; men cut their risk by 30 percent.Therefore, I did the unheard-of, and actually took a day off from blogging.
It was fun - I exercised, visited with family, puttered around the house, and watched "The Incredibles" on DVD. Although I read some blogs, I refrained from posting for a 24-hour period. In all, it was refreshing.
I may start to make a day of rest a regular thing. Maybe I'll extend it to a total day off from the 'Net (wait a minute, that's a little fanatical!).
