Yes. All of that

I could watch the Golden Girls a thousand times over and never get tired of it! I think one of my life goals is to find three roommates to live with when I get older.

Reading or paper crafting. I got a gel plate for Christmas and I love making prints on all kinds of paper and other stuff - I gel printed empty toilet paper rolls before using them to make something. Mainly, I look for something I can get totally absorbed in and these are the two things that do this for me.

Reading, or watching The Office for the 1,000,000,000th time. Or just laying on my bed and letting my cats cuddle with me

My "relaxing" workout is Tracy Anderson. Sounds counterintuitive, but for some reason her workouts mentally relax me - not so much physically!

Gentle seated or lying stretchy yoga.
Meditation, quiet time.

I've picked up some crafting hobbies and I really enjoy them. Learning the basics was pretty simple, but there's a lot more potential there, and that's fun too.

The anti-anxiety 4-7-8 breathing technique has done me a world of good, and I do that whenever I feel the need, but also when I wake up in the middle of the night, it does seem to help me fall back to sleep.

The whole warm bath thing is great, but not one I'm fond of in the dead of winter. If I'm not careful I can wind up getting chilly afterwards, mostly from not being careful enough about getting dry and covering my feet.

I love meditation and yoga, but lately my go-to is The Great British Baking Show. Everyone is so nice, the setting is beautiful, the stakes are low, and you can look at amazing baked goods without gaining weight. What's not to love?

I have a five foot pad with heating stones and pemf that I lay on and listen to audio podcasts. It's great after a few hours of not pacing myself well enough.
