Where's that? Oh, well anywhere there is water. It can be the fountain at the center of town, the waterfall on the nature path, a trip on the ferry or just hanging out at the beach! Seeing water instantly calms me down. If I don't feel like going out, playing in the bathroom sink is fun too (especially since I would have gotten in trouble as a youngin'!).
While there, I enjoy drinking water (hydration is key), being creative either through coloring/painting/doodling or simply writing in my journal. Every now and then I will grab a hot tea or cocoa but essentially, whatever makes me happy is the order of the day.
I make time for myself at least once a week. No one wants a grumpy therapist!
