Zen for the Win

Things get super stressful sometimes.  

This is not profound nor actual news to anyone I know.  It is a fact of life though.  I hate it.  I'm outgoing and mostly upbeat naturally so it takes a lot to bring me down so I know it's time to step back and reevaluate how to improve less than stellar zen like happy days.

What I do when stressful moments happen to happen:

Meditating mojo- I've gotten into breathing practices to bring me back to earth and the present moment during stressed out times.  Simple, in the nose-out the mouth, about 5 sets usually does the trick.  I learned this in therapy years ago and honestly I'm all about the natural way to alleviate angst.

Lemony water- Good ol' hot agua made in my regular ol' kettle teapot.  I don't know if it's the soothing warmth or the tart wake up call but this one will set your britches on right.

Walk it out-when possible I will get lost in a brisk pace, be it 20 minutes or 2 hours.  Both durations help and offer their respective calming effects.  The other day was super stressful and I managed to snag some time for me.  Before I knew it, I covered 5 miles of terrain and felt completely rejuvenated.

I hope you regularly soar more than you struggle.  Days and years are short so keep it all in perspective and do self check ins often to prevent burnout and turmoil.

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
