Play a mystery game with friends. They say computer games are good to challenge the brain just like reading, crosswords etc.

a giving practice helps get my mind off my problems.

once a day I try to give something away (and track it) for a period of one month.

it's surprising how much it changes your px when things are tough !

giving can be money but doesn't have to be - it becomes fun to find way to do it - my place in line to someone behind me who is in a hurry, a stamp, $20 to Red Cross, a bag of pet food for our local humane society foster system... endless ways to do it no matter how much you have or don't have.

clean horse pens - it's good exercise, you get to hang out with the horses, and you can see results even if it's just one wheelbarrow load!

sit and relax and read a book, sometimes with a glass of wine like today. Things have just been stressing me out and much of it is my fault so I need to be the one to change. I am reading during the nite cause i don't have time during the day??? I am retired, all that stuff will get done and if not right away, i need to learn to say --who cares?! It is gloomy cold and windy so no walk today,Tthe rest of this day is mine except for Brandy and supper is done. emoticon emoticon

I procrastinate with tasks that stress me out. In order to prevent that I make myself get at least one unpleasant thing done per day.

If I am sitting and find myself thinking too much, do something besides just sit. Drawing helps me to relax.
