Often times, when I’m stressed or whenever I have a lot on my mind, I’ll do one of two things:

  1. Go on a drive in the country
  2. Listen to acoustic music

Both of these do wonders for my spirit.

Way to often, I will allow stress to build up in my life and then be really irritable.

Luckily, driving and acoustic music give me the peace and calmness that I desire.

Whenever I listen to music like:



My spirit is just calmed.

Sound of an acoustic guitar is better than just about anything I can think of.  The bring, briung (<- I know, really bad sound effect.  What would you do?) of a guitar just puts me into such a relaxing mood.

As for driving, there is nothing like driving in the country at night (watch out for the deer).  In my Civic I have a moonroof and that just makes it that much better.  Being able to stare out and see the stars, the moon just makes everything that’s on my mind disappear.  So peaceful 🙂

Now, some questions for you:

  1. How do you release stress?
  2. Where do you go to “get away from it all”?
  3. What is the best way (for you) to experience peace?

Much love!
