some pictures that will remind you of fun times to take your mind off
your problems for a short period of time.

your body rhythm at normal. If you start to feel some aches and pains,

muscles first before proceeding with your workload.

work. If you have some free time, try to hook up with some health clinics
around the area and get a massage.

for work afterwards; while some can relieve you of your aches and pains
so that you can proceed with your work without worries of annoying muscle
