This afternoon, I took Gwen to see a live production of the musical, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.”
The actors did a great job and we had a wonderful time.
Everyone knows playing is important for children, but it is also important for adults. There are a lot of benefits to playing.
Here are a few examples:
It’s a great way to reduce stress.
It exercises the brain, improves creativity, and problem solving skills.
It strengthens relationships.
There are a variety of ways adults can participate in playing: video games, board games, puzzles, sport teams, and host of other activities that could be listed.
Remember to spend time playing today. It’s good for you.
I borrowed the book Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit from a friend, because I wanted to learn more about the topic. This is an excellent book and I found it to be enjoyable.
The book starts out with a little history and discusses how certain oils and herbs were used in ancient Oriental, Greek, and Roman civilizations.
There is also a basic explanation of Yin and Yang, as well as the five elements (Earth, Fire, Water, Wood, and Metal). The book explains how those concepts are used in preparing and prescribing essential oils.
The book gives an overview of various types of plants, how they were used in the past, and how they can be beneficial to individuals today.
Norton has decided to start pooping under my hammock. Mom thinks it’s funny. The poor little fellow doesn’t want to poop in the blazing hot sun. He needs shade to do his business.
However, I fail to see the humor. I like to read in the hammock and occasionally fall out of it. That’s supposed to be a reading zone, not a pooping zone.
Maybe I should post a “No Pooping Zone” sign.
We put a hammock in our backyard the other day and it has been a lot fun. I enjoy reading and relaxing in the hammock. Sometimes, one of the dogs will jump in and chill out with me.
Gwen also enjoys relaxing in the hammock, so we may have to create a hammock schedule for each person.
At the Thaler house, we are living the hammock life.
