With that whole day of stolen time do you spend it in the movies? Or do you go on an adventure you have been putting off; that road trip or day spent in nature on a canoe?
Can’t manage a whole day? Then maybe a trip to the library or a bit of shopping will give you a breather. What about some stolen time with a friend you haven’t seen a long time or some real quality time with your family?
