Phrases For Relaxation, Lower Blood Pressure and Stress Relief
Doctors have told many of us we need to relax, lower our blood pressure and de-stress. If you were an avid Seinfeld fan, the phrase “Serenity Now” needs no explanation. It was a phrase the George’s dad was supposed to use to lower his blood pressure. Without realizing it, I have apparently adopted that philosophy only with different phrases. Do you have a relaxation phrase?
I discovered my penchant for certain phrases when others started saying them back to me. My “go-to” phrase appears to come from the Tom T Hall song, “I Love.” If you hear “I love little baby ducks” coming from my mouth, you know trouble is brewing.
I don’t even know where # 2 comes from. A search of the web indicates some scouts sing this song, maybe it’s a nursery rhyme. And I’m sure I don’t know the entire song. But “Greasy, Grimey, Gopher Guts” indicates someone up the food chain needs a report.
And the term “hillbillies and goats” translates into “That’s ENOUGH!” I’m moving back home and starting the Tad Pole Alpaca-Goat Farm.
And finally a salute to “Serenity Now.”
Do you have relaxation phrase or code word that reduces your stress? If so, please share them everyone’s tired of hearing my 3 repeatedly.
