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).
- Sitting on the couch while the kids play with a cup of decaff coffee
- watching TV
- Playing soccer
What is your favorite way to calm yourself??
Taking a nap?
Going for a walk?
Reading a book?
Petting a dog?
Splashing in puddles?
Playing in the dirt?
Or better yet, playing in the mud?
Playing in the sand?
Digging for dinosaurs?
Being a couch potato?
We all have our own ways of unwinding. Love to hear from you!!
