Hmmm, I like everyone's tools in their portfolio. I just wanted to add some of mine....

Gardening of course. If I can't get out to actually do something, just somehow connecting with the Earth is helpful. Like watering my houseplants, pinching off a piece of rosemary and smelling it...

I also love to look up at the stars when I am out with the dog for her last run. Of course it makes me dizzy to put my head back that far for very long, but I always try to find my favorite constellations. I am always awed by a clear, star-filled sky.

I try to connect with friends and family via email or the phone when I am feeling lonely. Also IMing is good.

And shopping. That's a kind of therapy that I love, but it does get 'spensive. Lately I've been shopping on line, and then I get to the "view my cart" section and close the window. Kind of like window shopping online.

I think the idea of diversifying our self-care portfolio's is very valid. My guess would be that the more we have in there that we use from time to time, the better we are. Flexibility versus rigidity and all.
