  • Every day - twice a day - we are given the most amazing eye candy in the form of a sunrise and sunset. It's a gift that is free to all.

    Even if you're not awake in time for the sunrise, the sunset should be accessible.

    At that moment, stop whatever you're doing, go outside or to a window and look West.

    Use that time as a reminder to simply pause, look up and be grateful for what is.
