I will eventually create a refined and organized list. Right now this is just a stream of consciousness list, no thinking about which things work in which situations and how much energy I have to have to use the strategy.

Being out in nature

Watching my dogs race around open fields like maniacs

Being around water, better yet, being in the water

Curling up in bed with a good Scandinavian mystery

Visiting the art museum


Going to the symphony

Putting some of my favorite music on and dancing around the house

Talking to my best friend who lives so far away

Writing about my feelings

Remembering painful things from the past but changing the ending in a way that makes me feel more powerful

Riding my bike

Cleaning and organizing some part of my house

Working in the garden

Checking out an art book from the library and looking deeply at the photographs
