Meditate and Relax

Take the time to breath not just to wait for your results but to help reduce all the other stress going on.

Bubble Bath - If you are not one for sitting in water then go for a slow swim.
Read - Be inspired by a fashion trend or go on an adventure and save the princess.
Get Business Paperwork Done - Turn on some tunes and zone out into the world of paperwork. Those proposals won't write themselves.
Learn A New Skill - Knitting, Crochet, Basket Weaving, really what ever calls to you.


Be Active

Getting outside after work or on the weekends can help pass the time and can also be good for your body.

Take The Kids To The Zoo or Museum - If you don't have kids borrow some since there is nothing better than educating the youth of the world.
Go For A Picnic - You can prepare your picnic yourself or the grocery store has everything ready made for you.
Run, Jog, or Bike - A body in motion stays in motion and you can spend the whole time counting how many times you could have clicked your email refresh button.
Camping - Get away from your electronics so that when you get back home it is a wonderful surprise.
Throw a Summer Party - You'll be so stressed about the food, decor and entertainment you won't have any time to worry about your results.

No matter how you are dealing with the waiting, Floral.today is so proud of all the those that took the American Institute of Floral Designers, Professional Floral Design Evaluation. It is these people that are the future of our industry and what will be the backbone for our industry. Good luck to everybody and no matter the outcome, always remember that you are that much closer to your dreams.
