When I get home, my dog has a plan. It's ball time. Bessie is my dog, my friend and enthusiastic ball catcher.
Only after I have satisfied her ball obsession can I sit and relax. Ten minutes sitting in the shade listening to the birds and looking at the garden is all I need to let go of that traffic stress. I can just feel it melt away. Managing my stress is something I take seriously. And reconnecting with nature is my quick fix.
Who needs fancy candles and perfumes when you have roses, gardenias and plumeria in the garden? Often I will pick a flower and just sit and sniff it.
Aroma therapy in its simplest form.
Breathe in the fragrance, breathe out the stress. Works for me.
