Day 71

Casual hobbies are a must for relaxing your brain. Even those past times that seem violent on the surface will relax the participants. Archery, target shooting, football, boxing, gaming or competition knitting. Find your way to relax. Don’t worry about the naysayers. They can find their own zen.
