Yesterday, as I received my third copy for the year and took it out of the letterbox and wrapping, her words once again echoed in my ears and I realised that her gift does exactly what she hoped and more.

Firstly, as she intended, her gift:

  • reminds me to take time out
  • provides a wonderful recovery from a busy day.

But secondly, it goes far beyond that, to also:

  • remind me of how grateful I am for her friendship
  • make me smile that she was right that I do need reminding sometimes
  • help me savour my moments of doing “not much”
  • make me want to share this wonderful gift that’s all wrapped up in a magazine cover.

What reminders can you set up to prompt you to take time out and relax? Who can you share a reminder with?
