When you feel frustrated–Take a quick walk

When you feel frustrated–Take a quick walk:

Studies have shown that taking even a short walk helps you relax.

  • When at work, try walking down the nearest long hall.
  • Walk during your lunch break.
  • Walk either before or after work.
  • Walk to work, store, library or to visit a friend.

What can you do if a walk isn’t possible?

  • Try smiling.
  • Try standing up and stretching.
  • Try rolling your shoulders.
  • Try letting go of negative thoughts.

Take a good look at what is upsetting you:

  • Are you in a job that compliments your personality?
  • Are you forced to take a long commute to work?
  • Are you working around loud noises?
  • Are you working from home and feeling isolated?

When you are healthy–you feel better:

  • Did you get a good night’s sleep last night?
  • Did you work a night shift when you want to work days?
  • Did you eat a balanced diet yesterday or today?
  • Did you take time to find some quiet time just for you?

Stress robs you like a thief:

  • Growing plants helps restore you.
  • Being around plants helps relax you.
  • Ever notice how much better you feel in a building with plants?

 

Growing house plants are a great stress reliever:

The above geranium was given to me by a neighbor shortly after I moved to Nebraska, in early September.  Fortunately for me, Colleen removed them from the outdoor planter in her yard and gave them to me.

Now, my apartment has a healthy plant to brighten the living room.

You may want to beautify your living space with live plants.  Plants help clean the air, add greenery and respond to positive energy.

What you get by achieving your goals
is not as important 
as what you become

by achieving your goals.

Book Nook:

I’ll Pass for Your Comrade http://amzn.to/2zzvuHB by Anita Silvey is a light read and very enlightening.  It by passes all the gore and tells how some women fought for both sides.

There is nothing better than curling up and reading a good book!
