Your Saturday “Stay in Bed” Stimulus

Posted March 2, 2013 by Career Girl Network in Features

You work hard all week, Career Girls. You balance work, family, friends, cooking, cleaning, and so much more. But somehow, when Saturday rolls around, you just don’t know how to relax. It’s what Miranda Hobbes says to Steve when he tries to get her to sleep in on Saturday morning on “Sex and the City”:

Look. Saturday is my free day, right?
I have spinning and then I get my dry cleaning.
Then I get my nails done and I do my grocery shopping for the week.

Not anymore! Now, on Career Girl, every Saturday, you’ll get your weekly dose of “Stay in Bed Stimulus” – great reads, fun videos, and amazing podcasts and pieces of music that will make you want to stay in bed an extra hour, and get your much needed relaxation time in this weekend!
