  • It's good to get away from the crowds. Step away into the peace and quiet for a few hours and it's amazing how much more you can think about things clearly. Everywhere has a tranquil space you can escape to, it's good for the mind. No matter where you live, you will find somewhere, a local park, forest or walk along the river bank. I often find myself during these trips, so give it a go, you might surprise yourself.
