Relaxing With Green Tea

KW Hammock chairWhen you feel uptight or upset, and know that you just need to relax, a very simple and quick way to do this is to sip some green tea. It is an herbal tea, so there is no caffeine to get you revved up. It contains L-Thanine, which is a chemical that actually helps to relieve anger.

Take your nice cup of tea to your favorite spot to sit, possibly a knotted hammock chair.  Sit carefully, you don’t need a burn, then sip slowly, just feeling yourself calming down and relaxing immediately. Tell yourself you will at least sit here until your tea cup is empty, and longer, if possible. Now, give yourself a pat for taking care of you!

Hammock Chair Hideout

Caribbean Jumbo hammock chair

My family has five hammock chairs around our big maple tree. We sit in there, a bit hidden, under the shelter of the branches. We love our special family time spent here. It’s shady and cool in the heat of the summer too!

Yesterday morning I saw that one of the branches was laying on the ground. Did it even storm? No! It must just be too heavy from the rain, and the long branch couldn’t hold itself up any more. Not a complete tragedy, of course, as we still have privacy in the backyard. But we will miss that full branch! Thank God for our hammock chair hideout!

Hammock Chair On Balcony

Key West Hammock ChairHere again to talk about relaxing! Of course, I will start out by saying that an obvious way to relax is to plop down in a hammock and take a nap. But there are also hammock chairs, which are just as cozy, and work better in certain situations.

For example, you live in an apartment, have no  yard, but you do have a balcony, and love being outside. Hang a hammock chair out there! You will love yourself for it!

I am doing a series on Bandit, our family’s dear little Chihuahua. He truly loved relaxing in hammocks!

Actually, he was just so happy to be sitting near anyone in the family. He is a little hard to see, but he is sitting in this hammock chair too!

Sad Times

After the tragic events of the Boston Marathon yesterday, it is hard not to feel fear and loss of hope in humanity. But let’s rejoice in the bravery of the responders and everyone who jumped in to help those injured. Some runners ran to the hospital to donate blood. Bostonians are offering their homes to strangers that need a place to stay. Love is very much alive in this country. Let us remember that a few dirty drops of water do not spoil a whole ocean.

Let us send them prayers and positive hopes for recovery. My thoughts and prayers have been constantly with our brothers and sisters involved in this tragedy. I have spent the last hour in my hammock chair in prayer. Now I will go for a run to honor all of these people.

Beautiful Day

Brazilian hammock chairI am so thrilled! We finally have spring! Well, it’s actually feels like summer. It is almost hot at close to 80 degrees, but I will not complain. Not after how long it took to get nice!

I actually love the spring weather first, however. But I am just lounging in my swinging hammock chair, watching the birds fly around and listening to them chirp. There goes a beautiful blue bird!

Waiting For The Blooms

Brazil-Chair-SorbetWhite-LAfter being in DC yesterday, and seeing so many trees and flowers blooming, my yard looks quite drab! My trees are bare but they do have buds on them. I have one weeping cherry tree that is not near budding yet.

I am happy for the crocus and daffodils that are adding some color. I am so ready to watch this cherry tree bloom now that I am in the cherry blossom mood! My new Byer Of Maine hammock chair in sorbet will look perfect near the cherry blooms!

Windy Again

Every day, and I know I complained before, and so did another blogger, but it is windy again! My hammock chair is flying around like a twirling top!

I am ready for the wind to go away because “windy March” is over! I guess it will be April showers soon, that bring May flowers!

Good Friday

Jumbo Caribbean Hammock ChairA day to be home, if you are lucky enough to be off work, possibly with your family. In my household, we think of Biblical times, and the sad but happy day as Jesus died on the cross for our sins.

Often, this day, I find to be dreary and dismal, but today is beautiful! So is my mood! I am going to enjoy some outdoor time, running or biking, then I will definitely spend a little time in my hammock chair!

Caribbean Jumbo hammock chairThe sun came out today! It always makes me feel like it is warm out if the sun is out. So, I went outside…still cold, and windy too.

But, there are only four days of February left. I know I am getting closer to hanging a hammock chair in the tree and looking for the first robin!
