Finding the Calm

In The Crazy, Busyness

Do You Try to Find the Calm and the Stillness Daily, Weekly or Monthly?

I do! I have a few things that work best for me. I am able to be more self aware and it helps me release the pressure, tension and stress. I feel less mental and emotional too!

Little Things

I find my calm and stillness in the little things I do for myself and my whole being! It is relaxing and refreshing. I can just let my mind wander and my body be!

  • Taking the time in the morning to wake up, lie in bed and just get a good stretch in.
  • Having a scheduled time frame to go to bed in the evening as well as taking that 15 to 30 minutes to myself before turning out the lights.
  • Taking a walk and watching the sun rise.
  • Having a meal or a glass of wine and watching the sun set.
  • Building a campfire and star gazing.
  • Being aware of my breathing.
  • Cooking, baking and eating.
  • Being open and embracing the simple and the beautiful!

Getting Outside

I find my center again in getting outside and becoming one with nature! I can just lose myself and still my mind. I love creating a green space in my daily life! I find renewal, hope and growth in having a green space around me.


I love to brain storm and brain dump! I find it clears my mind and lets me go on a bit of a tangent too. I find writing relaxing and calming. I feel more energetic and creative too!


I can get really lost and zone out while reading, especially if it is a page turner!


I see my world differently when I am capturing it! I have been putting the camera down to just soak it in. I am like a tourist as well as on auto pilot when I get into photographing my surroundings! I become more aware and observant of those surroundings too.

Adventuring & Exploring (Photo by RSheridan)

Do you ever just act like a tourist in the place you live to check out what is going on in your area? Some people live in major cities while some people live in places that are really spread out. It could take months if not years to explore and adventure and more than likely may never truly see it all!

I can say that a few “tourist traps” have been explored when family has come into town for a visit. I know when I first moved here I was constantly checking out the area every spare weekend I had to explore and adventure. I have a few favorites picked out now!
