Spring has officially sprung. Have you stopped to smell the roses? All too often we run at a breakneck pace, not stopping to savor small moments or even catch our breath.

Regular readers of Pendaflex's blog know we are advocates of tools to enhance productivity and doing more with less. But sometimes the best way to be productive is to pass on cramming more work into fewer hours and stop, unplug and tune out for a time.

Work worries keeping you up at night? Or interfering with concentration during the day? Check out our advice in Stress Less: Keeping Work Worries in Check  for tips including time and task-management, to gain perspective on what seems like an overwhelming workload.

As indicated by it's name, the tool has best performance for Photoshop. However other image editors are covered as well.

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate
