What do you do to relieve the stresses of day?
What do you do to relieve the stresses of day?…or to just get away from it all for a little while?
To start with, I just try my best not to let anything bother me too much, if there's something stressing me out I make a conscious effort to keep calm, maybe sit down or even just walk slowly. Sort of strange but it works.
If all else fails throwing something or someone through a window normally does the trick.
Genna, what a great question! I discovered Hafiz yesterday, so today I would pull out his book of poetry and read a poem filled with light and joy. They are so uplifting.
I also do yoga, when stressed. It helps pull myself back into myself- gives me relief from what is stressing me as it releases negative endorphins (or whatever they are called.)
My last tactic to handle stress is to walk Finnegan in the Hundred Acre Wood near our home. The act of moving through a beautiful landscape helps put my stresses into perspective. What am I, compared to mountain tops and endless skies?
A glass of red Zinfandel in the evening helps, too, haha!
I play a game with my kids because they don't stress and I try to absorb their energy.
I do an hours worth of kenpo and kickboxing. Then I write.
I love to watch comedies, laughter is always the best medicine I also love going on walks around my neighborhood- I live in Washington, so everything is green and mossy and beautiful. Very calming
I personally drink wine and read poetry after running five to twelve miles.
I spend time outdoors, with a pet or go for a stroll by myself. Also reading a good book or magazine helps and so does pampering my self with a facial or manicure.
