I don’t have any magic secrets to de-stressing but I have found that getting away from the stressful situation for a while is always a big help if possible. Sometimes, even if I can’t leave the situation physically, I can escape into a good book for a while and that seems to help.
After I have had a stressful week, sometimes I like to take a long bubble bath and read a paperback while soaking in hot water with lavender bubbles. This doesn’t work as well as it used to because now I rarely have a new book to take to the bath with me. I buy all my books on my tablet and use the kindle reader now and I am not taking my tablet into the bath! That would surely lead to more stress!!!
Music and a long drive are a help sometimes too. I have about an hour’s commute each day so I turn on the radio to my favorite channels or use a playlist on my phone and sing along with my favorite songs. This can be helpful pretty much any day. (Although I sometimes get looks from other drivers who seem to think I am talking to myself but oh well!)
This week’s prompt is – How do you De-Stress?
- Anything else?
- What triggers your acknowledgement that you need to de-stress?
- other pains?
- What triggers you stress?As always, share what you feel comfortable – anything from nothing to…..your choice!
The Book of Me, Written by YouBy Julie Goucher 2012 – Anglers Rest Blog – http://www.anglersrest.net
The Book of Me is a themed event enabling you to build a “Book of Me” over at least the coming year to share with your descendants, in reality this project can be as long
or as short as you want it to be.
So much of our time is researching our ancestors, but how much of the incidentals of our lives do we share, or know about our parents, grandparents, siblings and the
people that matter to us?
It is these incidental snippets that enable us to “flesh out” our ancestors and what more of a legacy could we present to our descendants or future researchers?
Over the coming weeks there will be a weekly prompt enabling you to share those details and perhaps include details of things that you know of your parents, Grandparents, siblings etc
This is not just about genealogy or family history. It is about a personal journey; a journey of rediscovery of yourself and perhaps your loved ones through your eyes.
