How I Recharge…Method Number 7

One of the most challenging aspects of writing, for me, is the nonphysicalness of it.

I sit and think.  I sit and write.  I sit and brainstorm.  I sit and read.  My inner gears are smokin’ but the outer parts are pokin’.  A day of scribbling – literally, I’m a paper-and-pen girl – means moving my fingers.  Period.  So while the digits get a nice workout, the rest of me doesn’t.  Sure, exercise and walking counter that lack of movement, but I’m frequently left wanting more.

And one of my favorite ‘mores‘ is getting a Reiki treatment.  Reiki originated in Japan and is a technique based on facilitating a person’s life force energy for healing and stress reduction.  Lousy explanation, I know, but I’m really not trying to explain it.  If you’re not familiar with Reiki and you’re interested, you’ll look it up.

I’m just saying I like it.  A lot.  It makes me feel balanced.   Recharged.  Life is too short to scribble unhappily.  Find what recharges you and do more of it.
