#100daysofjensmusings- Day 51: Get Away

Get Away...even for a moment, an hour, a day.
If you can, escape your home, what you know. 
It's good for your health. 
The use it or lose it policy is good, even though people hate it. 

Feel your feet again and your breath.
Let yourself dive into your lungs and your heart. The space right behind it.

Picking your feet up is supposed to be good for every system in your body. 
Sip your tea or coffee early in the morning and let your mind be blank.
Breathe. Again.
Pick up that book, that creative project, that thank you note, that journal.

Pull on your grubby sneakers and walk. Walk for miles to the pond.
Then, come home and garden or stack wood.
Read in bed for hours at a time. Soak in an Epsom salt bath. 
Really enjoy a glass of wine. The red kind. Or white.

Let your brain take some time off. 
Did I say breathe?
Drive with the windows down and play rock music from the 1970's.
Eat an ice cream cone and let it drip down your chin. 
Sit in the sunshine with your face towards the sky and let the clouds hug you.
Magic in your soul, I tell you...Magic.
