Taking It Easy

What do I do to keep myself healthy and relaxed? I have been a fairly easygoing guy most of my life. My brothers and I grew up in a comfortable, positive, loving environment. We did have our differences, but we get along well in our retirement years now.

When I get a little stressed i just jump on a bus or the LRT for an hour or five and think things through. It has been a big help for me. Also, I try to eat fairly healthy food. I like sitting and watching movies with a plate of raw veggies and ranch dip, while sipping on a lemonade. However, I am also somewhat addicted to chocolate.

I feel I have been blessed with an easygoing temperament. I don’t get mad very often, and I like to make life fun and happy for everyone with whom I come into contact. I also like to tease a little and I don’t mind being teased.

Want to find out more about what I do to keep healthy? Lets have lunch or coffee sometime! Until then – keep your stick on the ice!
