Daily Challenge Saturday May. 05, 2012
Emotional Health focuses on daily experiences related to happiness, enjoyment, sadness, and stress in evaluating overall well-being.
Pick a place that always calms you, and pledge to picture it the next time you feel stressed.

Tough call, as I can think of many, such as the amazing California coast, beaches and the Pacific Ocean. I can hear those calming waves now. :)
But I will have to go with diving deep into meditation; going into the stillness of the heart. Nothing beats that, and it is portable, so I carry it with me wherever I go! :) Om!

I don't picture a place so much as visualizing cuddling with my children, my honey, dog, etc. It's that feeling of being embraced that brings me peace.

I picture the nameless falls below Nash Lake in the Three Sisters Wilderness.

My backyard is a "sanctuary" for me and I find myself only going out there on the weekends to enjoy the flowers, birds and silence. During the week, this week, I found myself feeling stressed and pictured myself in my backyard sanctuary which instantly relaxed me and restored my calm. Such a great way to invite calm into your day!

the trees and birds all around me in my backyard always calm me down and I can appreciate the world around me.

I think of my backyard as my "sanctuary". It is filled with birds, trees and silence and it always helps me to center myself and find calm.

me too,I feel like my backyard is an animal habitat with the deer, fox, hawks, groundhogs, etc not to mention the trees all around. I love being out there

I do get stressed out easy sometimes, and I think my favorite place to think about is in my bed. I always feel safe and comfy in my bed and the world is far away.
