Stress Relief, A Symphony in Pictures

As that wonderful expression goes:

A picture is worth a thousand words

So rather than blather on, I’m going to give you a symphony of stress relief; a four movement symphony in 4 pictures.

First Movement

In which our hero gets his kayak and his sorry kiester to the river, drops in with a fishing rod, and lights up a cigar.

A kayak on the river, a fishing pole and a cigar
Sometimes, you’ve just gotta relax

Second Movement

A bit of hard paddling for exercise, and the music plays on.

A screencap of an iPhone playing music
A heck of a workout tune

Third Movement

This little fellow’s stress was a little higher than mine.

Catching a small mouth bass
Thanks for playing little fella

Fourth Movement

On the other hand, these guys seem as chill as I feel.

Egrets feeding on the river
I’m as free as a bird, now


I’ve written about stacking for business success, exercise, and who knows what else. Why not stack your stress relief activities as well? This particular stack:

  • Solitude
  • Fishing
  • A cigar
  • Exercise
  • Music
  • Nature

Works wonders for me.
