12. Create a Nia routine with my favorite music
13. Bar the music to Nia Routine Passion, Earth Song, Beautiful
14. Create an abstract painting
15. Use Aromatherapy and essential oils (Lavender, rosemary, Cedarwood)
16.  Stay close to friends

I made this list about a month ago because I needed a visual to look at when I was stressed. This list actually helps me and keeps me grounded.  With my Complex Post traumatic Stress, I have come to understand that there are certain things that I need to do to take care of myself and that I need to keep my stress level low. By doing this, I am able to control some of the symptoms that I have.
