This Saturday, Take A #SerenitySelfie (PHOTOS)

For many of us, weekdays mean being stressed, overworked and constantly connected, with little time for pause or reflection. When the weekend comes around, it can be difficult to de-stress, slow down and unplug.

What we need is an oasis of well-being, wisdom and wonder. Enter Serenity Saturdays, an extension of our Third Metric initiative to redefine success beyond money and power.

Consider the initiative as your permission (and motivation) to enjoy your weekend -- to spend your Saturdays unplugged, blissed out and peaceful -- all things that will make you more creative and productive in the week ahead. Your brain (and boss) will thank you come Monday.

Last week, we asked readers to send in photos of themselves doing exactly what it is that makes them feel at peace. Below, find a few of our favorite serenity selfies. If you want to be featured in next week's roundup, post a selfie of you experiencing weekend bliss to Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #SerenitySelfie.
