Now a word from our very own Greg Hollywood Weiner
all worked up and no place to go…
So we have all been there, when the stress levels rise and we either blow up and take it out on others, usually the people who are the least warranted, or worse sometimes we keep it inside. So I think we all need to think about our "happy place".
So I can remember when I was young and I would get upset with my parents for yelling at me…don't know why, I never did anything wrong. I would always go to a the field next to our house and sit in a big hole in the ground. It was kind of fun, I made it into a fort, well ok, it was really a play house, but for the men…it was a fort. But there I could do anything and say anything and it was all OK. I later began to find comfort in music, songs that I really liked that would make me happy, or even smells. I love the smell of cinnamon rolls, Thanksgiving dinner, really fresh air, all of those things also trigger a release of happy feelings. Unfortunately for me, I not only like the smell of the food, I also ate a lot of it. That was my downfall, feeling happy and rewards are not the same, so a battle of who will win … food or me, but that will be another story later.
But what we all have to do is find a place in our heads, remembering a vacation, a beach, a sunset, a mountain, anything that we can picture in our minds that will give us a little peace,even if it is just for a moment. So I asked everyone to send in a photo or story of where they find their "happy place" so maybe they will also help us too.
So the next time you see me stressed out… think the gates, and just tell me to go to my happy place and see if it helps me. Thanks

That picture is my happy place. I grew up on Blvd East in North Bergen NJ, which is right across the Hudson between the GWB & the Lincoln Tunnel. There are benches from 90th st all the way down to about 48 st. The view is amazing. In the summer, the ice cream truck would come around, you would get your ice cream and just sit on a bench and enjoy the view. At night, my favorite time to go, you can enjoy the city lights. That's when I take advantage of the view. Its my quite time. My thinking time. My happy place. Where I let go. Where I scream if I have to. Where I run (its more like a REALLY slow paced jog) to clear my head. Where I go to just sit with my head phones and think. Some people go to the beach. I go to see the skyline.

My happy place is a view of water. Any water in motion can relax me. Whether it is a stream, river, ocean or sound, looking at it and zoning out is a form of meditation for me.
