The Currency of Pleasure



I saw this on the Omega Institute website a few weeks ago and thought that it was very good.

Stress is what happens when more of our energy is going out than coming in.

We have to stop and fill our well back up.

Some of my best ways of achieving this are getting enough sleep, having time alone, taking time to exercise, and being creative. It really doesn't take much more than saying no to others and yes to ourselves.

A friend of mine once told me that her favorite way to figure out if she really wants to do something that someone is inviting her to do is to ask them if she can get back to them on it. This way she doesn't say yes under pressure.

We just have to remember to do it.

I've been fighting off flu-like symptoms the last few days and my sister turned me on to oscillococcin, which is a homeopathic remedy. I found it at our local drug store near the cough drops and I really think it is working should any of you be in need :-)

  1. Hi Louise - I use the boiron small little homeopathic pills all the time for all kinds of aches and pains and they seem to always work. You can buy them at the food coops around here. You buy they by your sympton. I'm not sure where you would find them in Boston area but they are great. I didn't realize they packaged for drug stores. Cool. Hope you are feeling better. XO Kristin

    1. Thanks Kristin! This is good to learn. I found the oscillococcin at walgreens.I hope all is well with you out on your beautiful farm and that your sweater/textile/knitting/wool/ book writing world is flourishing.
