Stress Relief

I have a few things that make me calm in stressful moments of life. "The Girl from Ipanema" is at the top of the list. Astrud Giberto's voice is just so soothing and mellow. I'm listening to this and the rest of the Getz/Gilberto album on repeat this week to de-stress as I finish up a ton of work and pack/prepare for our next adventure, a 10 day work trip in Maui. 

What works to calm you in moments of stress? 


  1. Yes. Myles liked this song too. We are both more relaxed now.

  2. this song has an interesting back story. does everyone already know this? I think it is interesting that is one of the most covered songs ever. clearly, it is popular for the lasting good vibes it gives off?! i think so.

  3. I just love old music from the early 1900's to 1940's, especially. I find it enjoyable and calming. I also love to reminisce about days gone by. I love being in nature and listening to gentle music such as the harp or the pan flute.
