A good goal at the beginning of a new week is to get more exercise and to find more quality time.  Combine the two efforts by getting away from your computer and take a walk through the neighborhood.  If you have your camera in hand, you will be able to capture the colors of the season.  You will not be thinking about business or office problems when you focus your attention on a beautiful flower or plant.
