The Power of a Clear Mind

Real Estate Agent with Janisch & Co. 0396361

No matter how we may avoid it, hustle and bustle find their way in our lives.

The result is far from tranquil.  In fact I believe we blow out thousands of brain cells weekly due to our pursuit of who knows what!

Periodically we find it necessary to just find a quiet country road and take a drive.  With no destination in mind, there are no time restraints.

I can literally feel layers of tension remove themselves as these drives commence.  The Ahhhhhh factor takes control, the speed slows down and my head and heart rate slows too.

One more sign of our times being filled with things that are clearly not healthy for our overall well being, is the joy of being freed from deadlines etc.

Granted we cannot afford to indulge in these quiet drives often.  They do not make the required income.  They do however serve to clear our minds and sharpen our senses.  The trade off is worth a great deal!  Who knows, we might even find a way to make money from knowledge of these tranquil places

My husband and I get on our Harleys and feel the stress just disappear as we roll through the Northwoods of WI or the Hill Country of TX. Although I wear a helmet the wind is still in my face and the smells are so awesome. It is a great cleansing time.

Power of a clear mind can easily be overlooked. Thank you for a great reminder.
