counterproductive to relax, but if this is what you need, then go ahead and
relax for a day or so. Contemplate how you’ve been living your life, your
delayed goals, and what things you want to change. Find a serene spot and write

set small, doable goals for yourself, you’ll be that much more likely to take
on big ones.
