I am generally someone who finds doing something relaxing, and “relaxing” by doing nothing stressful. However, as the busyness of my life increases in lock-step with my age, I keep discovering new ways to thoroughly relax.
Here’s one: Come in from a busy day, have a nap while thinking myself to sleep, wake up thoroughly refreshed, read papers online, think, blog. I find random desultory thinking, writing and blogging deeply relaxing.
Another thing I find very relaxing is google. I love following stray ideas, and keeping on learning more and more and more about odd and stray things.
My favourite form of relaxation, however, is prayer!
