Shaking it off from the Day


It seems that ‘stress’ is the name of the game. And the dishers are out there dishing extra lately.
When I’m stressed, I do two things 1) drink tea and 2) walk my dogs.

  • I have a little tea ritual that I do that makes my experience a calm moment. There’s the cup, the tea, and the ceremony which includes a survey of the color of the tea for just the right flavorful intensity. Anyone who knows me knows: I love my tea.
  • My dogs get the credit for my exercise program. I highly recommend getting a dog if you want to add walking to your daily activities. Every day they have those moments when they can tell that I need to get away. Whether we walk a long way or a short distance is usually determined by how tense I am at the beginning and how quickly I release the tension.

It's hard not to absorb other's negativity. But, you sound like a good listener and it helps the other person. Plus you have figured out how to keep yourself sane.

Some days, it's more work than others, but I am hopeful & do what I can.
