Feel Good Activity: Snoqualmie Falls, Washington.

These last few weeks have been rough for a good many people in my life.  One of those lovely people was instructed by her therapist to engage in a "feel good" activity.  What is one thing that you can spend five minutes a day doing that can provide you with positive thought and peace?  Her answer was looking at the ocean, or really any body of water.  She even narrowed it down to which body of water, and decided that Snoqualmie Falls in Snoqualmie,Washington held a special place in her soul.  We decided we needed to find a good picture of the falls to contemplate daily.  I immedately jumped on flickr...and here are a few of my favorites.  

This is also a sneaky manipulation to try to remind Kelly of Washington.

She's right.
I already feel refreshed.

What would be YOUR feel-good activity?  
Mine might just be looking at beautiful pictures on flickr...or taking them.

I feel like a lame Washingtonian for having never enjoyed Snoqualmie Falls. I'll put it on my list of to-do's that I'm compiling. Maybe this summer?

Today I went to the bookstore. It was the only thing that i could think to do that I knew would help me tend to this achy, beat-up feeling that is trying prolong its stay. I think it helped.

xo, cbm

p.s. those pictures helped also.

my BEST feel-good activity would be a swim (preferrably nude, but that's a minor detail) in cool, clear water. honestly the best 'attitude adjustment' ever. Fresh water's best, but I found in NZ that salt water can have the same effect, you just don't feel as clean when you come out of it ;)
failing availability of said cool clear water, I'd go for a run. or sometimes a shower and a good meal will do the trick.

.....being in the sun.
Be it sitting and reading quietly or running on the side of a mountain -- if I do it in the sun I feel instantly good.
