    The things in life you get to do, that are soothing to the soul.
    What brings a zen like calmness to your life?

    When I get to...

    Lie on the beach , feel the breeze, hear the waves

    Snuggle.

    Play my bass

    Create a new vocal melody

    A really aggressive drum solo

    Hmmm, well that’s a start.

    Lying in bed wrapped in E's arms or as he strokes my skin as we hug

    An embrace from E

    Hugging the kitties (even if they squirm)

    A clean house

    Music (the type depends on my mood)

    Playing with a puppy or kitten or any baby animal :)

    Lately, it's been all about silence, being alone and walking in the woods.

    Sitting on deserted beach, sipping a Turkey and water puffing on a mac. With a couple of lines cast in the water, or playing my guitar listening to the waves break slowly on a calm gulf. That's my plain of serenity.:cool:

    Being with my wife. When the kids are calm and getting quiet and tired at the end of the night. Being in our backyard, grilling and enjoying the pool. Being at our cottage. On the pontoon. In the sand on our beach. Looking at the stars there, so many to be seen without Chicago city lights in the way.

    I also like to connect with nature, I'll tend my plants or just sit with my feet on the grass.
    I also find frogs and crickets soothing. We sleep with an app playing those plus waves and rain and thunder.

    Oh, I forgot about an app called "white noise lite"! There's one sound called "boat swaying in water" which is awesome. You can hear both the ocean and wood creaking...it's awesome!

    Waking up early and calling in. Having the day to do what’s on my list, or do very little at all. ( rarely happens).
    It more relaxing when it’s a weekday off, as apposed to the regularly having sat & sun off.

    Finishing a project I’ve been procrastinating on doing

    Lately it’s been about just being alone in my room. The quiet and calm and time too myself.
    I love to lay on the boach and listen to the ocean. And sit on my front porch swing alone.

    When I get to stop after a day of getting a bunch of crap done. Hopefully I hit just about every thing on my list.
    Yesterday was a wash, so maybe this afternoon I’ll sit an enjoy a cold frosty... after I get I get a lot done. But still procrastinating right now...

    Having my puppy lay up next to me is top of the list. Oddly enough, mowing my grass or harrowing my pasture gives me peace. Riding my bike along the river, taking my dog for a walk or to the creek.

    So many things really. I have a pretty stress free life as a whole so I’m generally in a great frame of mind :)

    Outdoor running at night often brings me towards a meditative state. Where it doesn't even feel like i'm running. Hard to describe the feeling. More like i'm gliding where the act becomes smooth and effortless. And hearing and feeling the nice breeze along with it.

    The wife and I lay out in the back yard in the evening looking up at the stars, holding hands and just listening to the sounds of nature both going to sleep and those just waking up for the night. Not caring or thinking about anything except each other. Sometimes it gets sexual but mostly just a shared time together but alone also.

    Been doing this for 40+ years now ...............and it never gets old! Makes us feel like teenagers again ...at least for a short time.

    There are many things that do but the absolute best for me is being with a woman naked skin to skin contact as much of it without sex is the most calming thing in the world for me.
    It's like all tension goes away. I always wondered if it is something that you are born with or receive from the love of your mother after birth and it sticks with you for life?

    In second place would be spending time alone with nature, a walk in the woods, sitting alone looking out over a lake.
    For me it's always better naked.
    For years for some reason as my boys grew up they always seemed to cause problems on my birthday so I learned to spend it alone. I always wondered what people would think coming upon a man in the woods laying in a stream naked as the water ran over and past him ;)
