We are naturally refreshed in deep sleep because our minds disengage from the busyness of life. The trick is to learn how to do that while you’re awake in your busy day-to-day life. It takes mindfulness and skill to recognize when you need to stop and know how to stop. Without hitting the Refresh Button, we get stuck in old patterns. The Refresh Button gives you an opportunity to take a second look and change your perspective.
