Benefit #1 It’s almost impossible to truly relax without slowing down. I have never been able to truly relax while running from place to place. I remember a trip we made back east a number of years ago. After several days in Virginia we made our way over to Washington DC. With only one day to spend in Washington DC we moved quickly from place to place, from museum to museum. It was fun for sure, but I wouldn’t say it was relaxing.
