Bowling

Marion has mentioned that several of our CEM team are in Independence for meetings this week. Knowing that we would be in meetings for several days, from morning ‘til evening, dealing with difficult and complex issues, the planners thought to insert a break in the middle of the week to get away from the meeting for a couple of hours. Consequently, on Wednesday afternoon we took a break and went bowling! It was a wise plan.

It was good to relax and have fun. The most oft heard comment at the beginning had to do with the number of years since most of us had played this game. Gradually the comments turned to offering support and encouragement, whether the bowler threw a strike or a gutter ball. We simply relaxed and had fun with one another.

The problems, issues, and challenges of life can be pretty daunting. Often there is a need to stop and have fun together. Sometimes we need to take a break, relax, laugh, and regenerate. Soon, we will be ready to once again, resume the tasks we face.

What do you do to break the stress and tension that you live with? What works for you? Is there something you can share with the rest of us that may be helpful? What has broken the tension for you at times?
