Zen Habits

I talked to Google on some how to's and lead me to this great website.

It's all about being mentally and emotionally healthy. The site has some tips on how to's and I find it really itneresting because I actuall do some of them.

75 simple pleasure to brighten your day -

1.Listening to good music in the car.

I don't have a car, but I know sooner or later I'll be having one - I just need to work on it. But instead I listen to my iPod, if you're an avid reader of my previous posts, you know that my ipod is my bestfriend. So whether at work, while commuting, going shopping and dining alone... I listen to my ipod. Don't ask what genre of music I listen to, they're all pop. Bass heavy and pop oriented tones to uplift my sole soul.

2. Taking a long, relaxing shower.

Tried this and it's very rejuvinating. Warm water is suggested as it relaxes your muscles. The down side of long showers is it cripples you skin. lol

3. Watching the sunrise/sunset.

This may sound like a boring task to do, especially if you are alone which I always do, but instead of watching the harsh light of sunrise, I always watch the bleak sunset. Together with my ipod, it's a perfect experience.

4. Snuggling in bed with your partner.

Common, do I need to say more? This is really a pleasure IF AND ONLY IF you have a partner. Otherwise, forget it.

5. Dark Chocolate.

I dont't like Dark Chocolates as they are too bitter. Not really into bitter-sweet food. I might go to Milk Chocolates instead.

6. Fries and a chocolate milkshake.

Done this! A hot, salty and freshly-cooked fries topped with tons of Heinz ketchup and a sweet, cold milkshake on the side. Better than chocolates.

7. Walking on the beach/Watching the ocean.

When I was in Boracay, I took the opportunity to sneak out of from my friends and walk the shoreline of the beach from Station 1 to Station 3 late at night.

8. Iced green tea.

Better than anything else, with the craze of milk teas nowadays. This is a must have. Trying to eat those large pearls when there's no more tea to drink is a challenge.

You might wanna check out the site, maybe it can give you some relief. As of now, I need a lot of those. Everyday!
