You never thought you could save your sanity before the day even starts, did you? Growing up on and near a beach for most of my life one of the things I live for are seeing the sunrise and sunsets along the coast. That moment in the morning before everyone gets up. I can drive over to the beach with coffee in hand and enjoy the beauty of the sunrise, really take in how amazing and colorful it is. In today’s world, it’s so easy to take everything for granted and pass up the moments like this, the moments that are truly sanity savers.
Here are a few other of my sanity savers, let me know if you do any of these.
Soak My Cares Away
Sometimes all it takes is filling up my garden tub and stepping in, to melt away the cares of my day. A hot bath gets rid of my knots and aches and just allows me time to escape, to sit and do nothing. I find that I can always find something to do and feel the need to be busy, but the moment I sit down in my tub I can just stop and relax.
I love picking up a good non-fiction book. I get so immersed in the book and drawn in, it takes me out of whatever battle I may be facing and lets me escape, even if just for a bit.
I took dance for 15 years, it was something I LOVED to do. The love for dance has definitely carried on with me through adulthood and almost on a daily basis you can find me dancing around my house. There is just something about turning up the music, and getting my blood pumping that brings a smile to my face. I may look silly to some when I am doing it, but I always feel more calm and focused.
Taking In A Movie
Like a book, this allows me to escape for a few hours. Immersing myself in a great plot and storyline is one sure way I feel refreshed. I can’t think of one time I have walked out of a movie theater feeling frazzled, even if I went in that way.
Sometimes all the sanity saving I need comes from a few quiet moments spent in prayer, it’s a place I go to get refreshed.
Family And Friends
The ones I am closest to can be the ones who calm me down, allow me to vent, or just let me cry on their shoulders. There is no way I would get through life without them.
So, those are some of my sanity savers. Because I know I could use a few more ways to relax, I would love to hear some of your sanity savers.
