Stress -It's all in how you handle it - good luck in finding a very necessary release!

The quilts are absolutely beautiful and very calming. Maybe your Mom needs to lay under one for a bit. ;) Best wishes to her and you!


feel better soon, Cherri! Yoga is wonderful. :)


Stress is a nasty little thing that can do more damage than anyone can imagine! Relax....ummmm....think yoga & happy thoughts!

Still thinking of you guys,


Lizzy, at least stress is easily treatable. I teach Tai Chi, and can tell you that it and/or yoga are great for stress. What I like about Tai Chi is, I don't have to get on the floor. I call it meditation in motion. It's like a Martial Arts dance.

And that is why I just had a glass of wine in the middle of the day - stress. Feel better now and ready to get back to the task at hand.


That's good news, I guess. But Stress is really hard to get a handle on for someone as busy as you guys.

That pic looks just wonderful. I'm working on the Tempest right now; I think it might become my fave.


Oh, that devil, stress. I second the recommendation for Tai Chi. I took a beginner class and between the warm up exercises and the movement of Tai Chi itself, it was a wonderful stress reducer. The best thing about Tai Chi is that anyone can do it. The movements are slow and flowing, and can be modified for any level of flexibility and even mobility.
Another thing that helped me was a breathing exercise my aunt-the-counselor taught me. Lower your shoulders (if you're like me, they're hiked up around your ears), then inhale slowly. When you inhale, do not lift your shoulders chest. Instead move your belly out. This causes the diaphragm to drop, which allows your lungs to expand downward. Inhale through your nose for a slow count of five, then hold it for a slow count of three, then exhale through pursed lips for a slow count of five. Repeat five times. Do it three (or more) times a day. It sounds strange, and feels strange at first, but it really helps reduce stress levels.

I'll be thinking good thoughts for you two and hoping she gets to come home soon!

I second the yoga and meditation for stress relief. It helped me greatly. And you just need to make some quiet time for yourself everyday. Hope everyone is stress free soon!
