Completing Your Work Day - Breathing Space Blog
* Each day, before you are about to leave, pause for a minute to acknowledge yourself for what you accomplished or did not accomplish. This simple mental exercise frees you to experience the rest of your day.
* Once inside your car or on the bus, consider that you are already "home." You don't have to wait until you are actually in the door and kicking off your shoes.
* If traffic is slow, stop off at a drug store or hardware store and buy the household items you usually acquire on Saturday.
* If you perpetually bring home work from the office, give yourself a break -- several times a week come home empty-handed.

Makeover Your Environment - Breathing Space Blog
The 21,572 seats each have a marvelous view of the court. There are no posts, banners, or other obstructions. The sound system is wonderful -- no reverberation or static, just clear, crisp tones of the speaker. The lighting is perfect, as is the scoreboard, the ventilation system, and virtually all other aspects of the facility.
As impressive as this structure is, there's something even more notable, and it hangs from the rafters. I'm talking about the retired jerseys of former UNC basketball greats and the championship banners acknowledging successful seasons. You'd think that having such banners installed would be old hat to a coach like Roy Williams. Yet, whether it's an Atlantic Coast Conference regular season championship, tournament championship, NCAA tournament participation, second-round, final sixteen, final eight, semi-finals, finals, or NCAA championship, which happened most recently in 2005 and 2009, everything this team has accomplished hangs from the rafters for the fans to see.
Dean Smith, Roy Williams, and the University of North Carolina athletic department profoundly understand the importance of environment. Those banners, hung chronologically and neatly from the rafters, are continuing psychological boosts to the coach, the team, and all of those who are associated with Carolina basketball. They tell new recruits, "We have tradition here. We are winners, and we will win again."
