Today is the final day of the Blogging from A-Z Challenge! My readers voted for the theme “Life, the Universe, and Everything According to My Five-Year-Old”. During bedtime discussions and colouring sessions, my daughter has been providing the answers to the philosophical problems and unsolved mysteries that have puzzled humanity’s greatest thinkers for centuries.
How to feel zen
Me: How can we feel peaceful and calm inside?
L: Hmm…talking, sleeping and relaxing.
Me: What are some good ways to relax?
L: Play with slime, do painting, snuggle with family. Being in the ocean or sitting and reading a book.
Me: Why do you think it’s good to relax?
L: Because if we never relax we get distressed.
Me: If we’re feeling stressed, how can we calm down?
L: Count to four then tell somebody what happened and have a hug.
What are your favourite ways to relax? Have you tried yoga, meditation or any other techniques? Let me know in the comments!
“count to four” is unique. Now I wonder why four?
I have finally used all your prompts. The last one is in my Z post, if you can believe it!
Oh great, I am hoping to catch up on reading your posts over the weekend.
She’s five going on to Zen.
Have enjoyed your posts tremendously. Thank you.
This was a fabulous theme and I very much enjoyed your daughter’s take on some big questions. Congratulations to you and Leona both on completing the challenge!
Black and White: Z for Zerzura
A nice way to end – you deserve some Zen time after the challenge, and so does your daughter for all those amazing drawings and charming conversations. Thoroughly enjoyed your posts Anstice, well done.
Your daughter is a delight. “Count to four then tell somebody what happened and have a hug” is clearly fabulous advice. I’ve enjoyed your series – thanks to you and your daughter for making April extra enjoyable.
With the exception of playing with slime, those are some of my favorite ways to relax, and I could use a trip to the ocean right about now.
Congratulations on completing the A to Z Challenge!
Your daughter’s suggestions for dis-stressing are spot-on. Thanks for a month of smiles. And congratulations on completing the AtoZChallenge2021. We made it!
Such a clever girl!
Awwww! Count to four and get a hug … the simple solution for most of the problems under the sun !
I agree, a hug and everything is going to be allright 😉
