cleansing our mind is a healthy habit
to rid us of accumulated angst
we each have different techniques

some clean the cupboards
take a brisk walk
distract by building or creating

others write it out then burn it
or tie it to a stone to drown it
quiet contemplation heals it

whichever tool we use
find the most effective
as worry or guilt waste energy

forgiving ourselves
is as important as forgiving others
saving energy for healthier things

contemplation is my method
but others sing in a choir
play their favourite music

walk by the water, garden,
fishing is deep contemplation
run or cycle a physical outlet

find your relaxing fix
and try to schedule it in
being too busy is the ultimate sin!
