Quiet Moments

I am a pretty busy person. It is hard for me to sit still and have quiet time. I don't know if God or society made me this way, but I am on the go almost constantly. During the years, I have tried to slow myself down, and have tremendously, but I still move from one project to another without taking down time. Sometimes, my husband says it seems to cause me more stress to try to slow down than to go ahead and do all my projects. Recently, due to health issues, I am realizing that I must do so, though.
I like to drink a cup of coffee or herbal tea (really weak) and eat a piece of dark chocolate as a treat. I rarely finish the drink. This morning, I sat and relaxed while finishing the drink, while looking out the window at nature. 1 time of relaxation! Yea. Then, later, I sat at my vanity and rubbed my feet with cream, while taking extra time to massage them a bit instead of hurrying at it. 2 times! yea. Hope I can keep taking those moments of quiet time for my health's sake.
BTW, my health is OK. It is mainly stress and I need to relax!

Way to go Belinda! I am trying to find some good natural stress relievers for myself! Walking seems to help but with the weather we are having lately I've not gotten to walk much. Finally joined a "Senior Citizen" gym last week where I can go and walk for $2 a month! Walked there 3 times last week. Only trouble is that town is 30 minutes away for me so with this yucky weather this week I have not even been able to get down there! Rather walk here at home but it's impossible right now. I have started having trouble with my b/p the past couple of years. Had MANY tests run and doctor finally just said..."It must be stress!" Wow. What kind of pill can you take for that? ha

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I know just what you mean. Ralph says they need stop signs in the grocery store because I don't even stop at the end of the isle. I too move from one thing to the next. I can't stand to just sit for too long, and I know one day it'll catch up with me and I'll HAVE to do it!
