Showers, swimming, rainstorms (not REALLY severe weather), water, the quiet sounds of a fan, cuddling with a pillow

I was at a meeting today. I got board and found myself watching the blades of s ceiling fan.

Taking apart a pen and reassembling it over and over.
Making extremely long chains of paperclips.

I light a candle and watch the flame dance and flicker.

That brings back memories from grade school, where everyone I was around used to sing that. It was so funny.

Standing at the corner, watching street lights turn green.

This is also very relaxing for me

Taking a strip of paper and folding it 45-degrees so that the strip now points at a right angle to it's previous orientation. Repeat. End up with a thinner strip or a spiral that looks like a square from above. I've never tested it but I don't think I pick up a long strip of paper and *not* do this.

The Llama song must have been created long after my time in grade school (early Sixties).

I never head it, nor heard OF it, until I suddenly saw tons of spoofs of the song on U Tube during the 2008 election year when folks would find ways to work Obama's name into the song. Both the original song, and the Obama spoofs are all quite cute.

Playing "Sweet Drmzzz". It's free online. I played all the game levels but sometimes I play a level just for relaxation.

Concentration meditation, staring at a flame, or animals. Silence, isolation, and drinking coffee slowly. :D

When I really need to relax, I dim the lights, light some incense, and bury myself in blankets/pillows on the sofa. (Somehow laying at a 45 deg angle is more comforting than laying flat or sitting upright.)

Being perched high off the ground in a sturdy place, like in a treehouse, bunk bed, balcony.

When I'm nervous at work, I get cold and clammy, so I run my hands under warm water from the faucet.

Recently discovered ASMR, too, which is wonderful!

Rain - and looking at something spinning. I love holding my squishy ball in a couple of hairs and making it spin by pulling and slacking the hairs. :)
