What does that mean to you?
And what makes you feel that way, take that feeling and try to use it everyday. Like a visual calm scene; or a warm bath with bubbles and candles; a nice serene atmosphere, A walk in the woods; Or sitting by the beach; watching the stars. Something that can bring your mood up, and let you relax at the same time. There are also relaxation exercises; cd's with birds singing, animals, winds blowing, water flowing. There are so many things you can do to feel uplifted and relaxed. So find one, do it every day or at least every chance you get, and then own it.

This time of year, maybe you want to do something small for someone else in need. For me that would be very uplifting. I thought I would make some pumpkin, banana and cranberry breads today; for some of my less fortunate friends. And then pass them out, not just because it is the Holiday Season but because it is needed.

I get into scrapebooking. Going through the old picture and remembering all the fun time with my father and brother and niece. They are now deceased. These memories are priceless!!! It always puts a smile on my face. Also all my new pictures too. They seem to bring me back to those days. So relaxing to close my eyes and think of all the good times.

Oh I love the CDs with the thunder sounds and the Native American music with the woodpipes. So calming. Also playing with my new puppy. And you all will think this is strange but I like to clean my kitchen, like the stove and arrange my cabinets. But I have so many problems I cannot stand a long time but it is relaxing to me.

I like playing with my yorkie. This relaxes me. I also like to do laundry(lol). I don't really mind doing anything but I can't stand very long either.Would like to do more. I also like the warm water in the pool where I go this helps arthritis and neuropathy.

Wow, that is so bazaar, I can not wait to get up and start a new day of cleaning; starting with the kitchen, until (of Course) the pain hits, but I milk the pain as long as I can. It a least gives me a feeling of accomplishment.
