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 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?


Reading a book?


Making music?

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!!
