Day 3306: Chillax

Because I can’t seem to break my habit of worrying about (1) possible catastrophes, (2) not responding quickly enough to everyone, and (3) inexplicably high numbers for my weight and my INR, I am telling myself (and anyone else who needs to hear it) to chillax.

If you don’t know what “chillax” means, chillax. Here’s a definition.

These days, I can dance to my favorite tune or chillax, but I can’t have friends over because of Omicron.

Yesterday, in a remote Coping and Healing therapy group, we helped each other chillax by consciously letting go of fears and accepting our own worth.

I recently committed to doing another remote Open Mic on Friday and doing a presentation about my groups in February, so I need to chillax about both of those. I have a tendency to get nervous about performances, even though I’ve done so many before, so (say it along with me, please) …


After I get up every precious morning, I chillax by creating this blog. Do any of my images for today help you chillax?

I don’t know what “World Quark Day” is, but I’m going to chillax about that. Also, I’ve been eating way too much popcorn lately, which might explain the weight gain, so instead of eating popcorn on National Popcorn Day, I’m going to chillax.

What helps you chillax?

Ending each daily blog post with gratitude helps me chillax, so thanks to everyone who is visiting here now, including YOU.

  1. Reading your blog before I leave for the library to work does indeed help me chillax. Thank you, always, Ann, for your insight into our world.

  2. Hi Ann, I loved the little cartoon of the Thesaurus – that made me chuckle, and a good chuckle at 5:04AM always starts the day off right. I am obsessed with the floors in your house, they are so pretty, Also, a quark in a fundamental part of matter. Not knowing the meaning of words causes me anxiety, looking up words is part of me chillaxing. Have a great day!

  3. I shall. Thank you!

    Joan is an excellent fetcher.

  5. I was hoping World Quark Day had something to do with the subnuclear particle, or maybe even the TV show with Richard Benjamin, but it seems to really be about the European cheese. I hope you can chillax, though, since it’s the only logical thing to do.

    Reading your blog , Ann is chillaxing

  7. I am a huge believer of chillaxing as a therapy for most of what ails us, and I find all kinds of ways to do so, but it’s usually just something uncomplicated and easy, all part of it.

  8. I need continual reminders to chillax, Ann. Thank you! And can I just say that you being honest about your own anxieties really helps me. I mean it! You are a trusted source and friend!
