    I like to cook….the old-fashioned way, hand mixing and chopping by hand. I find the necessity to pay attention as I chop, chop, chop forces me to focus myself mentally on the here and now, rather than let my thoughts wander to all the chores, responsibilities and “things i gotta do” and often threaten to overwhelm.

    The most relaxing thing I do is splitting wood. I take all my frustrations, tension, energy and thoughts; transfer it to the ax head and then WHAM. Very useful that I end up with split pieces as well.
