    Talking to other advocates (like few I’ve been speaking with already)

    Getting a pedicure
    Going for a massage
    Reading a good book

    My form of self-care are: yoga, meditation and therapy. In a moment of high stress, I know I can turn inward with meditation.

    I have a supportive family, enjoy lots of activities that are distressing for me including gardening, working out ( too little) reading biking ) also too little) and sweeping ( lol- I actually do that when I’m stressed)

    My places are Day trips, mornings w coffee in my yard And I find my work as a realtor very rewarding.

    I certainly hope to have interaction with the fellow CASA class members; it’s unfortunate that we haven’t had much of that opportunity. Clearly several are experienced and insightful, and I’m sure I will need guidance and advice as to how to proceed. Meanwhile, I sometimes relax by going fishing, though I have a nasty tendency to obsess and play neurotic, unhelpful tape-loops when I do that. Exercise is always helpful.
