Life is filled with so much activity and excitement, which can be great, but sometimes it's nice to take a moment to stop, relax and let go of all the stress and fatigue that can build up.
A TRICKLING STREAM
Find a quiet and comfortable place to sit or lay down. Enjoy the stillness of removing yourself from the fast pace of life.
Where do you go to relax mentally and physically?
For some people, it's as simple as time in the shower or bathtub!
Take a break from your day at this little stream that's tucked away in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. This shady and intimate spot is cool and refreshing. Moss gently carpets the rocks and captures the quick splashes of water. During the day, birds fly in for a refreshing drink and at night raccoons and coyotes visit. Have you ever experienced a place like this? Think of a place you've been. Imagine you are there. Breathe in deeply and when you breathe out imagine stress and worries are leaving your body. Sometimes in quiet times like this, emotions can pop up unexpectedly and that's okay. For the moment, let them be.
When you're ready, open your eyes, stretch up your arms, and rotate your body from side to side. Acknowledge how lucky you are to be you in this moment.
