The Sandbox Writing Challenge #4 — Relaxation & Pleasure

Still going back in time to complete Calen’s challenge based on Roberta Allen’s The Playful Way to Knowing Yourself

Tell us a little bit about:

a) what relaxes you, and

b) what brings you pleasure.

What relaxes me:

  • listening to music – sometimes classical, sometimes heavy metal
  • my white noise machine
  • meditation
  • reiki
  • reading a good book
  • smoking a cigarette (yes yes yes, I know)
  • a long hot shower
  • veggin’ out in front of the laptop, watching Netflix
  • listening to it rain
  • a glass of red wine
  • a hot cup of tea
  • sitting on the front porch in the rocker just listening to nature (when the traffic has died down)

What brings me pleasure:

  • Chocolate
  • a few White Russians (the drink, not the body)
  • listening to raven’s cawing (I have an affinity for ravens and their cawing is pure poetry to me)
  • comfort food – biscuits & gravy, mac-n-cheese, spaghetti, cabbage & meatballs, meatloaf (all the things that are bad for me)
  • coffee
  • Pepsi Max
  • writing
  • reading a good book
  • watching a documentary on Netflix
  • Seeing my nieces
  • wearing bracelets
  • painting my fingernails
  • buying books on Amazon or entering contests on Goodreads (I am a book whore)
  • spending time with my dad
  • listening to Prince or Simply Red
  • doing research
