Relaxing is Good for the Soul

"He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul's estate."
Henry David Thoreau
I have a covered garden swing in the back yard, big enough for three people to sit on (four if we squish). I love to go out there when the weather is nice, and I love to look at the back yard, and listen to the birds. I especially like to lay down on my back, rock back and forth, and read a book. When I get tired of reading, I like to close my eyes and take some deep breaths and just be. Relax. Be still.   Yesterday I made a date with myself to do just that.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Where is your favourite spot to relax?
