thanks readers!

got some great feedback from readers on my post about stress;

mike shared a simple method, get under the covers, meditate & the answers may come

clean & crazy, one of my faithful readers along with the the poet laureate shadow,
said she rubs a small icon(i love it), blogs, and shares with her s/o.

athena mentioned giving up control, reading and patience.

tabitha suggessted relaxing, seeing what can be changed.and never giving up

rob used the bible while in iraq, and recommends it. thank you for your advice & service to our country.

tall kay reminded me to slow down, stay in the present and concentrate on breathing.

lydia , who has long term sobriety, yet still hears that call of the wild, uses music to sooth
and told me "trust in my own springtime"...i like that!

thank you all !!!

even though my life is very simple, i can often allow the little things to upset me

i need to be reminded of the book "don't sweat the small stuff"

stress... mmmm, driving real fast usually helps. no seriously, i find taking that which causes the stress and disecting it into little pieces and then tackling each little piece, one at a time, works for me. and don't forget to breathe!

I empty out the noise in my head and lose myself in my surroundings - my working dog, a blazing fire, watching the snow or rain fall, a hot cup of tea. In other words, once you quiet the noise in your head, only then will you hear what the heart is saying. I've found life tends to be more serene, tranquil this way. (Hugs)Indigo

Accupuncture works for me to relax,as does stretching daily,mediation,reading and less caffine.I can't stand it when I feel my jaw clenched when I get stressed so I manage my body the best I can even if my brain is clutching

Oh.And just as importantly-LAUGH.
Listen to good music and cook yourself a whole fab meal at home.

yep..just a couple of my fave things I thought I would share.

Have a good weekend.

Thanks for sharing :)
