Soothing yourself - What do you do?

i take bubble baths, call my Mom or a buddy, eat macaroni & cheese or perogies, nap, watch golden girls, used to snuggle with my kitties till i had to give them to my Mum & Dad (new landlord refused pets), vacuuming...
your comforts?

Reading a favorite book. Watching a good movie. Sleeping. Hugging/playing/loving my kitties.

I like looking out into our woods. It's so peaceful there.

Me, I can sit and watch and listen to my grandkids for hours on end. their sweet voices just seems to sooth my soul..I also love to sit outside in the shade and wait for hummingbirds..Just watching them takes away lots of cares..A long walk in the mountains when I was able..That was heaven.

Laying on the couch especially on a rainy/snowy day watching movies eating popcorn and having really good hot chocolate, eating really good chocolate, Going back to bed for a long nap with all the pets around me. Cooking a comfort meal. Mac & Cheese is up there. Getting up in the morning and never getting out of my pajamas and doing all the above. No house cleaning and just basically doing nothing.Falling asleep at 10:30 in the morning on the couch with a good pillow and a yummy warm blanket waking up 2 hours later but still not worried about getting the chores done and pretty much being useless the rest of the day.

I used to sooth by cutting, we were trying alternatives to that like X-Box, housework, projects, computer games, stuff like that. Wasn't working that well, but then I realized one day cooking always made me feel better (as long as it turned out good and the family liked it!), so I started using that to sooth. Works pretty well, I just have to watch I don't eat everything I make! LOL.
