It’s the big weekend for shopping the sales and waiting in line. It reminds me of a birthday party I went to at Chuck E. Cheese when my children were small. It was so loud and crowded that the birthday girl’s mom said, “I just want to go home and sit under a tree.” The Black Friday frenzy always makes me want to do the same thing! 

This weekend, take a break from shopping and head outside. Take a walk, read a book, or just relax under a tree. You might feel so rejuvenated by the fresh air and natural light that you can tackle the stores again  — or you may just stay under that tree.
