     There are so  many outlets for your emotions.  For some it is working in a garden for a little while that can relieve stress.  Digging in the dirt and planting beautiful flowers brings peace to your soul.  Watching things grow seems to give you a better perspective on life.
     For others it is music, either playing an instrument or just enjoying a beautiful song.  Music helps you relax, like a good massage.  They say that music soothes the savage breast.  I really believe this to be true.  Listening to a good opera or the velvet voice of Frank Sinatra can take you to another place, another time, and give you a peaceful feeling.  It also brings back beautiful memories.
     For some, exercise relieves stressful emotions.  Working off the frustrations of life can work up a sweat.  Then have a sauna to cleanse your pores, relax with a gentle message, and see how the world looks to you.  This does wonders for your overall feeling at well-being.
      Lose yourself in a good book, while you curl up on the sofa with a hot cup of tea or coffee.  It will transport you to another dimension at least for awhile.
      If time is in short supply, even a hot bubble bath will soothe your stress and relax your muscles and your mind.  It doesn’t matter what you do, just find whatever fits your needs. 
     When the pressure builds it is time to find a release.  Whatever that release is...use it.

              THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
He giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no
                 might he increaseth strength.                            
                                                       ---Isiah 40:29
