Default Re: Relaxation and recuperation

Given that therapy is a relatively sedentary activity (physically anyway), I need to do simply the opposite. I find that when I feel stressed over my profession it is most helpful to get physical. The activities that work best for me is to go dancing, do some gardening, and work with horses. Often this is very tiring stuff, but afterward I am refreshed, my mind is clear, and I'm ready to attend to my practice. For the most part, I make every effort to incorporate some physical but fun activities into my every week. Plus I have found that having ritual behaviors for the end of every day to signal a change of environment helps to refocus my attention, keep my mind clear and relax my body while at home.
