The Little Pleasures of Life
You're a person who seeks the immediate pleasure of life, even the shorter ones. You find them in experiences like shopping, spa or a good meal. When you feel bad, anxious or angry, you usually look for that quick pleasure to make you forget about your trouble. This act usually relaxes you, even though you may experience some guilt later. As long as you don't go too far and make it into an addiction (to shopping, to sugar) - then it's a good way to relax. If your friends think you shop too much, explain to them this is your way to find calm.
Your Family and Friends
There's little doubt you a more relaxed and happier when you are around people you care about. You love the feeling of being together, like hosting and being a guest and you are attracted to long deep conversations with the people you like. Your way of clearing those life worries is by sharing them with others, sharing both emotion and experience. You are close to your family and your many friends, and they give you a base to stand on and a wall of loving people to shield you from the outside world. It's a wonderful thing.
Spending Time Outside the House
The song 'Flowers on the Wall' was definitely NOT written about you. You're not one to stay home, but find relaxation and peace only when you are moving and dynamic. You love being outside the house for either sports, travelling, going out, dining etc. These activities give you peace of mind. You also like parties and taking courses, anything that involves going out and meeting people. You're less into deep conversations and more into experiences, this is what makes you feel good, and it's a great thing!
Being By Yourself
You're a person who, at some stage of life, realized that some people are mere distractions, and that you are at your most relaxed and focused when you are alone. Despite being an introvert by choice, many still want to spend time with you, but you insist on keeping some time for yourself to be along with your thoughts, maybe listening to music, creating or just pondering. People may say you should create more connections, but as long as you know how to handle your time along and use it as a source of relaxation and rest, there's nothing wrong with that. It's just what keeps you calm and sane.
