Fun Monday Challenge #7

"Share Hope" collage by Lani and textures from FlyPaper
Create a piece of art today that will totally reflect for you a sense of peace and relaxation.  Think back to a place where you felt copletely relaxed.  It could be anywhere, but for me it would be a beach in Bermuda.  What does this place feel like?  What is the light like?  Sounds, colors, textures?  Incorporate these elements into your piece and when you are done, place it where you most need to see it!

Want special bonus relaxation hints for an extra fun Monday?  Tonight, 2 hours before your normal going-to-bed time, light some candles and turn off the regular lighting.  Make some herbal tea, put on your bathrobe and snuggle into your couch.  Perhaps some Baroque music with the rhythms of mother/fetus heart beats would be a bonus.  This rhythm should put your brain into an alpha state which has a relaxing effect on the amygdala which of course is a very good thing!

Feel free to share your work or play on Instagram by adding #14SecretsChallenge to your description, or by adding your photo to our Flickr pool.
