How do you De-stress?


Scott, thinking and looking forward to doing nothing on a camping trip.

To continue on with the theme of maintaining mental stability, I wanted to brainstorm different ideas on how to unwind or de-stress.  The presentation we heard on this topic included the fact that too much of anything is not good, but when used in balance, de-stressing activities are extremely beneficial! 

I know that I love:
  • Playing the piano
  • Doing yoga to very calming music (my favorite is Liquid Mind....it has no rhythm except the chord change when the songwriter takes a breath...he wrote it specifically to help himself de-stress).
  • Meditating
  • Sitting on the couch while the kids play with a cup of decaff coffee
  • reading
  • watching TV
  • Painting
  • Playing soccer


What is your favorite way to calm yourself??


Taking a nap?


Going for a walk?


Exercising?



Reading a book?


Painting?


Making music?


Petting a dog?


Splashing in puddles?




Swinging?




Playing in the dirt?


Or better yet, playing in the mud? 


Playing in the sand?


Digging for dinosaurs?



Cleaning?


Socializing?


Being a couch potato?

We all have our own ways of unwinding.  Love to hear from you!!
