Take Time out to Enjoy the Wonders of Nature that Surround us

Like most of our clients, Safe Havens Analysts tend to lead very busy lives.  It is fairly typical for an SHI analyst to spend between 100 and 250 days a year on the road with long work hours and work weeks.  There have been times that some of our personnel have had to work 11-16 hour days for weeks at a time without a single day off.  Two of our analysts have pursued graduate degrees while working long hours as well.  At the same time, our personnel try to get into the habit of taking vacations when we find ourselves in areas we have not had the chance to spend leisure time.  This helps us to unwind and refresh.  Regardless of what you do to serve children and youth, taking some quality time for family and friends is important. 

Life is too short and the world is too beautiful to spend it all working.   Try to make the time to relax so you can serve others well while taking care of yourself and those you love.
