A month and a week into the new year, and it's already been a bit of a rollercoaster. Moments of calm, punctuated by moments of drama and stress. I'm working on handling that stress--I'm thinking of lots of hot tea, trying new snacks (pictured above are longan berries--they taste like chocolate-y raisins), flowers, book reading and maybe some creative time/space. And of course, nature walks. Getting outside always resets my brain(case) and blows away some of that mental fog.
