Cat cuddles for me…the very first thing I experience every morning…yep, even before my fasting blood sugar, Lula pokes at the covers so she can crawl underneath and cuddle me when I wake up.
Aside from my cat, I find that nature is always what soothes me and helps me regain perspective. Just watching the birds in the trees, walking along kicking dried leaves, or going to the beach or mountains. Nature is awesome.
Also my house. Not that I live anywhere fancy and I have moved a lot. But wherever I settle becomes my safe place where I can return from whatever stressors I’m experiencing to my cozy nest and feel at ease.
