Work, work, work, drama, stress, and more work! We all go through it. Sleeping is my favorite way to relax. Mostly because it gives my brain a rest from thinking. I would love to learn some meditation techniques for those times I can’t sneak in a nap. Praying is another favorite stress reliever. Relaxation and rest is good for the mind, body, and soul. Relax!
Whenever I am on the computer and feel like I need a break, I go to either of these two websites: http://www.donothingfor2minutes.com and http://www.calm.com
The music is quite soothing. 🙂 But, praying tops everything!
Thanks for sharing those sites. I’m downloading the app now. I think that was the longest two minuets of my life! LOL! 🙂
Haha, yes, it’s hard to sit still for two minutes straight! 😀
One thing I have learned through school and work, is downloading a few slow songs. (songs you would hear as a salon or while getting a massage). Times I feel really stressed I just play one of those songs, close my eyes and concentrate on breathing. This helps bring my stress level down a little bit and helps me through that day! Maybe just something for you to try? love the Doodles!!
Great suggestion! Sometimes I listen to classical or Jazz when I need to mellow out. Most of all I enjoy total silence.
Total silence is a virtue! Wish there was more of it in this crazy world!!
I love sleeping, and dreaming is the best. Praying and meditation are great ways too. I could learn a thing or two when it comes to meditation. It’s not easy for me to sit still.
Me and you both! I don’t know what it feels like to still my mind for more than 30 seconds. lol
I like a nap too. I was told by a therapist friend that NASA studies show the most effective nap is 26 minutes long. Any more, and you can slip into deep sleep. Shorter than that doesn’t allow for the first real stages of good sleep. Just thought I’d pass that along…
That’s funny you shared that because most power naps I take during the day to relieve stress are about that long. Good to know!
