My Calming Place

Updated: Apr 18, 2020

Where is a place where you feel a sense of calmness? Is it a specific place or is it certain kinds of places? It’s amazing how a certain kind of scenery can change your mood. What’s that place for you?

For me, it’s water. It always has been and I’m not really sure why. I don’t even need to necessarily be looking at the water. Just the sound of it helps calm me down. If you believe in the zodiac signs and horoscopes (which I’m not sure if I do) you could say it’s because I’m a water sign. Pisces Proud!

On my worst days, all I want to do is lay in the shower. Just laying there helps with my anxiety and depressive episodes. If I wake up in the morning feeling a little off I just put the shower on for a couple minutes (I shower at night!) while I’m getting ready. No other reason than to help reduce my anxiety.

Now, if I’m actually by a large body of water... AH! That sounds like heaven to me. I don’t necessarily want to be in the water (lakes freak me out), but I want to sit right on the shore. I could go on and on about water, but I think you get the picture. I LIKE WATER!
