Hi there,
I hope all of you are having a good day.  Since this is a stessful time of year, I think we should all share our relaxation techniques. 
I like to meditate and listen to music.  Also I practice relaxing type breathing.  In through the nose and out through the mouth.  Sometimes called, smelling the roses and blowing out the candles.
What do you do to relax when you get stressed?
Hugs, Karen
PS don't forget that it is Chat Tuesday.  Kitt even has a topic for us to talk about!

Good Morning Karen,

I am tired but wanted to get a few posts in before I crash.  I know you are aware of the stressful day but I believe things are  going back to the good side of town.  LOL

To relax, I buy myself vanilla candles and will light one first thing in the morning and the smell of it is relaxing.  I also take a short nap with my dog every afternoon as I can lay down and forget about everything except her cuddle up with me.

Well that's my story and I am sticking to it.

Love ya kiddo

If it is possible, I will grab a book with spiritual poems and quotes in it, because that will make me realize that there is always positivity in the world. When I am calmed down enough, I focus on my breathing as you do Karen, and continue doing that until that inner peace inside me because visible again.

Ow, and sometimes I play the stress out on the piano.

Have a good day!
Acceptance is the key

The World is but a reflection. Smile, and it will smile back.

Try to keep smiling! :)
