ACTION TIP: If you feel you are spending too much time on one area of your life, find small ways at first to redress the balance. For instance, if you’re not getting enough vacation time, but can’t get away, take mini-vacations on the weekends. If that’s too much, have a picnic in the park during your lunch hour. It may not be a substitute for two weeks in Bali, but you may be surprised how much more relaxed it will help you feel.
