Make a list of the parks, museums, farmers markets, and historical thing in your area! Once a month take the time visited one of the things on your list. Take a book leave and leave your cellphone at home. Maybe you cannot even afford this! Take a hot bath then relax with a book, music, movie or close friend. Find a warm chair, a warm friend, a warm pet – we all need connection. Yet we also need down time—alone time.
