“Have you ever noticed the rings on the stumps of trees? From a young age, we’re taught that a single ring represents a year of that tree’s life, but they can tell us even more than that. Scientists can learn not only the age of a tree by looking at its rings, they can also learn about the growing conditions during the tree’s life.

These things will help you recharge, relax, and get yourself through the week even stronger. Keeping yourself busy is good, but too much can lead to burning yourself out.”
