Each year, I write the same basic post about why your brain needs a vacation and each year I fail to really take one myself. To be honest, this year is beginning to look like more of the same behavior, since I don’t have any days off planned just yet and we are well into August. So I’m not going to regale you with all the studies that show how your brain benefits from a change in the daily routine and is recharged by traveling to different places. If I actually do manage to squeeze in a vacation, I’ll let you know in a future post. What I can do is commit to reading some really great books that have been sitting on my bookshelf for a while. If you have a favorite book that you’d like to recommend, please let me know and you might see it on our Bookshelf page one of these days. Each of these books is well worth your time – enjoy!
