Our lil ritual

Once a week my friend and I have this soothing ritual.. It kinda grew on us..

We go to our special spot.. Where the coffee is good, the weather fabulous, and the scenery serene..

We just sit there and feel the negative energy flow out.. (Just like Dharma's bubble, if you ever watched that show)..

Its not your usual dinner with a friend.. Its what she calls "mental yoga".. Its very healthy.. And gives you that boost you need to get through the week..

In our profession, if you don't rid yourself from residual emotional baggage (which piles up with every patient you see) it can pretty much screw up your personal life..

So that is how we deal with it..

How do you deal with stress? What with the economy, the situation in the arab world and our own personal dilemmas..

How do you drain it out of your system?

Exercising, photo shooting and creating art work are my mental escapes... but nothing beats a family gathering and sharing the good laughs with friends.

designing! it works magic for me!
working out and getting ohsorelaxing massages work well too..
I think the key is to surround yourself with charming, funny and caring people.. thats the best <3
