Finding Your Escape

Life can get super hectic sometimes - seriously. Especially when you've got a life to lead in the workplace as well as kids to look after as and a relationship to keep healthy. That's just the things we have to do and the things we have and can plan for - other spontaneous life events can rear up for better or for worse. This is just a part of life and will only add to its hectic pace. There isn’t much you can do to stand in the way of the pace of modern family life at work and at home.

The home itself can be super hectic. We go there to escape the outside world and with frantic partners and hyper kids - the inner workings of a family home can be just as hectic as the outside world - on occasion. The home needs to be a place of relaxation, otherwise, it will lose a huge primary use. We need to be able to chill in the home and if we can't? Stress will only build up. You either need to make your home a place where you can escape from the outside world - or you need to find your own escape. Either way - you need to do something to ensure that stress doesn’t take over.
You don't need to be told this, surely - but stress is a killer. We feel stress because of our survival instincts. Stress fills our brain with worry and our body with adrenaline which leads to those anxious and nauseous feelings you may feel when stressed out. It also leads to other short-term woes like headaches and colds. Repeat stress is bad for the body - it's like flooding the engine of the car. Repeat stress can raise the blood pressure of your body, it can lead to stroke and it can cause heart disease as well as bring on a whole heap of other nasty ailments.

So how do you deal with stress? Well, we need to find our escape. A clean home is the first thing we can do and this helps our minds in many ways. A clean and organized environment lends itself well to a peaceful mind. Of course, this involves a fair bit of work which you might not feel like performing, but the results of it are worth it. Once the home is clean and a place we can chill in, we can start to escape easier. Sometimes, just sitting around in the relaxing environment of a clean home is enough. Sometimes, you need a hobby - joining a reading club like paperback swap could help and you can learn more about paperbackswap here. Hobbies are important as they keep the mind busy and productive. Finding your escape is about looking into your own interests and see what relaxes you most.
An escape? It could be sitting around, playing a guitar, reading, cooking or watching the TV - as long as you’re happy and take the time to decompress - anything can be an escape.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
