I played hookie today. It's not for something that I get paid for or even something I have to do. However, it is something that my body loves. I typically take many yoga classes per week on top of my home practice. I really get a lot from my practice, however, the time away seemed to serve me well too. Sometimes inaction is a powerful action in itself. We often hear how the greatest athletes use visualization to strengthen their game - it works, in all aspects of life I imagine. Taking the time to visualize and play with situations using the mind is very useful for conversations, situations of all types, and any activity. Try it out.
