Learning how to relax – Waking up to a Florida Sunrise

My last thought last night was to go to bed early and get up at 6 am to meet the sunrise at the beach. I am very lucky I life about a half mile from the beach down here in South Florida.

I did the first part, I went to bed at around 11pm which for me is early. I am usually up to all hours on the computer running my online business. I realize I need to take a step back and find some time to relax. I am sure I spend at least 2 hours a day farting around on the computer because I feel I should be on the computer.
