Spectacular Fireflies

Fireflies this year are especially spectacular. My sweetie and i lie in the hammock at night for 20 minutes before bedtime and watch these "shooting stars" streak across the dark lawn. They are twinkling to the female glowworms in the grass. Rapidly turning our flashlight on and off once results in the grass lighting up like Christmas lights as the ladies all turn on to us.

This relaxation and en-JOY-ment stimulates the rest-and-digest function of the parasympathetic nervous system, which is a good antidote to stress.

When you're stressed, where do you find refuge? Many people find refuge outdoors in nature or with their pets.

What's the place, person, or situation where you feel safe and secure?
Go there--in your mind--now.

Take a break from stress and practice "natural" meditation.
