QOTW: Renewing Your Spirit

When your life becomes boring and routine, or the opposite, stressful and chaotic, how do you renew your spirit? How do you recharge your spiritual batteries, so to speak? Is there something in particular that you do to help you de-stress and feel more connected to life and to your spirituality?

It really depends. Sometimes it's music. Sometimes it's watching an escapist movie. And if the weather m=permits, it's sitting outside and watching the birds and squirrels at the feeder.

Go to church, read the Bible, get together with friends from church.

For me it's music, art and books. I get creative to relax.

I walk, listen to music, listen to podcasts. Sometimes I colour or I draw. Yoga helps a lot. Bellydancing brings joy. Listen to a guided imagery, or do my own meditation. Cook!

In order to renew my spirit I try to spend time outdoors, in order to renew my connection to the Earth Mother and Her children. Spending time playing with my cats helps out a lot, as does belly dancing, listening to music, cooking or creating a lovely piece of jewelry, especially if it has a spiritual theme.

For me it's usually just some time by myself. Either in the bathtub or a walk by myself. I also like to listen to music on my ipod.

I meditate, take walks around the lake, hike the nature trails, garden, read, and spend time with dear friends.
