Default clearing the mind

my favorite thing to do is take a long drive, doesn't matter where. I just pick up my keys, pick a direction and go. It helps clear my mind and clean it from any bad vibes/ideas/thoughts. I once drove all the way to Santa Barbara.

What do you do to keep yourself from going insane?

-----
It's a good idea to spend a good amount of time by yourself. I know it freaks out certain people to be alone for a bit. I think it's healthy for the mind to do it from time to time. The hardest thing is probably making time. we all live busy lives and it becomes difficult.

I did that once, drive around to clear my mind. I ended up in Venice. lol. I got lost, but enjoyed exploring to find my way back to familiar grounds. Helped me feel better after a while. But normally, I just sit on my bed and think. Sometimes I write out what I'm thinking in this little bound book I have.

Driving usually works wonders to clear my head. Other times, having a good laugh or a good beer works.

I really like to spend time alone, I always have :/ …I think I just cant stand nonsense gossip and useless conversations …. Id much rather do some thing productive with my time (sleep lol).

For me it's music. It's always been my escape route. Nothing like grabbing your head phones,sit down relax and just get into the music.

I usually play guitar until my fingers bleed but lately that doesn't do it for me. I did get a chance to go to the gun range a couple of weekends ago and that really helped a lot!

Chillin at the beach smoking at phat ass joint while the sun is setting and listening to the waves crash is ALWAYS good medicine to my soul <3
*I'm truly blessed to live so close to the beach <3



A night out with wit good friends~ beer, music and the dance floor = a worry free Kikka


Road trips (Vegas, Santa Barbara, Frisco and or San Diego) load music, phat joints and great company is another one of my Favorites to clear my head.

All of the above works for me to relieve stress, except for the greenery.

Yes you are cabrona! Some of us have to drive a couple of hours to get to the beach.
