I like to keep focus on the things that make me happy and keep my stress level low. What are those things? If I have to ask myself, then clearly I am not engaging in them enough or making enough time for them. So tonight, when my shoulders are tense and my heart is heavy, I decided to engage in one of those things that bring me joy- writing.
For me, writing is a quick and easy way to get a load of crap off my chest. I am amazed at words on paper; I love them. So, I am writing this little quick post to cathartirize (I am well aware that’s not a word but I really wanted to impress upon the readers how cathartic writing is for me LOL) my emotions. Freeing myself and my mind of the things that stress me the heck out by just writing refocuses me and my energy to a good place.
Some other things that are quick stress relievers for me are (in no particular order):
- Music (right now I am on Colbie Caillat's new CD and of course my Sade)
- Movies (stuck on comedy, when I get a chance)
- Kids (just hanging out with them without worrying about or thinking about anything but having fun)
- Friends (the ones that make me laugh or just listen)
