To recharge my spirit, I take a long walk in the woods alone. It’s quiet in order to think and process whatever is going on that I am struggling with.
Thanks for sharing that, Alison. Sounds like a good way to recharge.

Laurie Emerson says
I recharge my spirit by watching the sunrise each morning while having a cup of tea in my porch swing. The beautiful sunrise lets me know that a brand new day full of hope and possibilities has begun.
New to this site, but I recharge my spirit by sitting in silence in nature and focusing on relaxing breath. It’s when I feel closest to God.
