Travel theme: Relaxing

Now this week’s travel theme is relaxing.
 

So, what is relaxing?

What is relaxing to you?

How do you relax?

 
To me relaxing can be different, depending to whatever I feel like doing.  Here are a few of my “relaxing” moments.
 
Foremost: enjoying a hot cup of coffee: here it is the Arabic green coffee bean Kehwa with Cardamon flavor

Kehwa or green Arabic Coffee with Almond filled Dates! Almost a Gourmet Entree, Refreshment or "after-dinner-drink-and-bite"

What is Meditation?

Meditation is to try to get past the “thinking” mind, and into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness. It is to connect with oneself in the moment. My teacher says: connect and follow with your breath, this is the simplest way to meditate!

Like with many other things, I hardly find time to relax and esp. meditate, but as they say:

if you don’t find a minute, you should do it for 3 minutes!

It is like a “Reset” button!

 

Keen on seeing the relaxing moments of others on this challenge!
