Writing and daily blogging helps with keeping stress at bay - which is everywhere.
I just have to go to my local supermarket, cross the road, walk down the street and hey presto, people get in the way, people look the other way whilst crossing, some truly don't look where they are going and some walk right into you.....
I do relaxation sessions 2 or 3 times during the day. Relaxing helps me boost energy. I use for this pzizz (android app technology based on sound). Just export a 20 minute energizer session. Close your eyes and let the sounds wash over you. Don’t even worry about feeling energized. Just listen with your eyes closed and relaxed position where you are at the maximum comfort you can be in.
I totally agree with Susan. Nothing makes me relax quicker than listening to my cat purr. But if I'm trying to relax for writing or something similar I usually revisit the beautiful places I've visited in my mind, usually the waterfall in my profile picture, so I can listen to the rhythmic falling of water, feel the summer air being cooled by the mist.
