  1. I am going to have to try this technique. I am just back to work this week, and I can already feel my anxiety kicking in. My go to for finding peace has always been nature, be it the sea or the mountains.

  2. I also love nature for finding peace, that's probably ideal. Its nice to have an indoor technique that can be found anywhere, as long as you can get a few moments of quiet, not always easy in my house!

  3. My husband and I started doing a lot of walking on a bayou pathway near us and I am surprised that now I look forward to our walks. It's some nice quiet time and there's usually some wildlife doing something. It's nice.

  4. There's nothing more soothing than nature. I always feel better when I go for a walk outside. Sometimes I'll just sit and listen and that puts everything in perspective.

  5. I’ve just had some hypnotherapy and now I actually believe I can relax! I find relaxing to the person’s voice really effective which I have on my MP3. I can find relaxing to music can feel lonely to me. I do know what you mean about the world getting in. I like your blog.

  6. Hey stays I am really really making a concerted and conscious effort to find it from within. Meditation yoga breathing surrounding myself with people who are striving to do the same… All of that.

      Carla, Its important to surround ourselves with positive people as much as possible. Its not always easy, but it makes a huge difference in life.

  7. I need to make a point to do this! I find that I’m so busy working or watching the political stuff that I feel frayed and frazzled way more than I want to.

  8. Great reminder to take a few moments! Thanks Laurie. I try to go for a 30 minute bike ride everyday. I am one with the elements and feel better after my break. My husband mentioned I was going out to exercise and while that may seem like it it is more meditative for me, no big hills or inclines just a peddle in the fresh air.

      Haralee, I find the outdoors very restorative. There’s a serenity about nature that’s soothing. Your bike ride sounds like heaven.
