Day 12: A Proper Lie-in
Today’s tip is going to be short and sweet, because this is something I plan to put into action this very morning!  With our over-scheduled lives and constant multitasking, a brief respite is an essential ingredient for a charmed life.  You must be rested if you are to feel your very best.  A rested mind is a clear mind, and a clear mind is receptive to all that is charming and classy and fabulous.  When you have the opportunity to have a proper lie-in, take it!  Leave your pajamas on for a few extra hours, climb into bed with the Sunday Times, make tea and loaf about, snuggle up to your sweetheart and sleep in.

While it is impossible to take a proper vacation every week, you’ll always be able to find a few hours here and there that allow you to relax and recharge.  It could even be after a square dance (see above).
