Stress Management Technique...!


My sister sent me this piece and since I wanted something to make you smile a bit, I thought I would share it with you. I hope you enjoy it!

Just in case you are having a rough day, here is a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological journals.
The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile.

1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.

2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.

3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.

4. No one knows your secret place.

5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.

6. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

7. The water is so crystal clear that you can easily make out the face of the person you are holding underwater.

There!! See? It really does work. You're smiling already !


Now, my friend, let's get some coffee and sit on the patio for a while. OK?

That was a good technique, Uncle Hermit. It did work :D

Hmm....I'm thinking that I need to go do it again. So many faces, so little time. Heehee!

I hope you have a great day! May it be a relaxing one for you, you deserve it!

Hugs~Felinae~

Good morning Mr Hermit,
Love the comments this morning.
I sleeped late this morning woke up to the phone didn't know what it was. Got an offer on the Chalet already. I just mentioned it on the RVB to someone, they must have passed it along.
Lets have some good strong coffee to wake me up here.

HermitJim said...

Hey JoJo...

Strong coffee coming up! Urban for ya, of course!

Catman said...

Hey! Where are the piranhas?

HermitJim said...

Hey Catman...
Geeez...! I completely forgot 'em! Sorry about that! Guess I didn't want to poison the fish!

JoJo said...

Thank you Darlin,
It sure has been a busy morning around here. We know how I don't like to talk to people for awhile.
people calling asking me questions about what is going on in the club house for fathers day. Now how cold is that? Do they think I really care at this point. And so and so's water system broke. OHOHo here comes another rant.
Quick pour more coffee.

HermitJim said...

Hey Daft...
Always a pleasure, my friend. Making people smile a bit is a blessing for me, and I know that we can never have too many grins in our backpack for our journey.

Thanks for the visit...

JoJo said...

WOW what kind of word is sleeped? To much going on around here at that time. LOL Hope your day is going OK. Was able to get the phone disconnected today. One down many more to go.
JoJo

HermitJim said...

Hey JoJo...
I was kinda wondering about that, but being the nice guy that I am I didn't want to say anything!

Good news on getting the phone disconnected...now maybe the rest will be more likely to fall into place. I certainly hope so!

JoJo said...

Grandson's ankle was a clean break no surgery needed. They set it and casted it AND booted. He is on his way home. Good thing #2 today.

HermitJim said...

HA! At last, proof positive that you're my father! Other than the fact that we, you know, look alike, and speak alike, and stuff.

Hugs,
Ashley

HermitJim said...

Hey Rod...
Doesn't take much to make us happy now days, does it? Glad you got a kick out of it!

Thanks for the visit, buddy!


Hey FCH...
It was good for a giggle, wasn't it?

Thanks for coming by...


Hey Ashley...
We don't look alike...my hair is shorter and I have a beard!
