  • 这是我在中国
I see lots of clients who are tired, fatigued and exhausted. I ask when was the last time you had a break? 
If it’s been over 6 months, it’s too long. From a stay-cation to exploring China, it’s crucial to take some time out, slow down and de-stress, like recharging the batteries. When was the last time you took a breather? .
