What does a stable mental state smell like? To me it smells like citrus and peppermint.
What does a good mental state feel like? Ideally it would be good if my cat grew big enough so that it can cuddle me. Playing in the rain.
What do I do to help myself calm down? I like to build a giant sand castle with many rooms. There is something about the sea and sand that is special. Also I plant vegetables. Get my hands dirty. Smell the flowers. Breathe in the fresh air and sit in the sun. Endless trail for running would be good too.
The primal human thing. They bring joy and connection. Best of all they are free.
