    I have two things I do that help me relieve stress…

    1. Going to get a mani/pedi – it feels so good to have other people take care of you. Plus it forces you to sit in one place for at least 30 mins. You really can’t do anything else. I take the time to focus on being in the moment; having someone washing and massaging my feet/hands, helping to nourish my skin and muscles.

    2. Sit outside in nature early in the morning or late in the evening – I live in Houston so the city is busy all day long. Luckily in the early morning or late in the evening people are inside. I will go outside and soak up the quiet, the sounds of the trees or water running. Sometime I will go hiking to find the same solitude. Growing up in Colorado finding solitude was easy so I’ve had to learn to find that here in Houston.
