Mindful and Meditative Mondays #9

Nature dissolves anxiety

It’s been a stressful few weeks here, which for me culminated in that crazy combo of eclipse, Equinox and new moon energy at the end of last week.  Did anyone else’s head feel like it was just going to pop?  I am a sensitive Pisces and probably felt it more than most, but I think I’m still in recovery mode.

A few positives that happened:

1) I started a few fierce conversations that I’d been undeftly (yep, just made up a new word) handling until last week. There were tears and swollen eyeballs on my part, but I’m feeling less anxious about them.

2) I got back to jogging in my quest to get back in shape for my health and a marathon run in February 2016. It’s amazing how fast being fit can slip through your fingers, so I’m happy to get back to where I need to be.

Jogging felt really good because I was moving my body, I was doing something to take care of myself and I was out in nature checking out all the new things spring has brought my neighborhood.

This leads me to my little nugget for this week…enjoy and have a wonderful week.

Nature dissolves anxiety


By Joy

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


  1. Good to hear you have gone back to jogging, Joy. I think exercise does help, and being outside certainly does. I did a blog diet a few months back and have lost 10lbs in weight, am sleeping better, and getting away from the computer more often, and going outside on long walks (helps to have a dog). Certainly at this time of the year nature has a lot to offer us and it has been a pleasure taking in the outside world.

    Wishing you a better week ahead.

    1. I was talking to the Man the other day about how they say people with dogs are usually much more fit as they are forced to take them on daily walks. I told him, we are walking ourselves…like we are each other’s pups! I hope you are having a great week so far Hugh.

What's your 2 sense?
