Visit the Cornwall Public Library in Orange County to borrow a copy of the book and get reading! Learn how Cailey boosts her mood Hudson Valley Parent's intern Cailey Walls depends on me time to keep her at her physical and mental best. She has a few activities that she uses to keep her body strong and her mind clear of the stresses of daily life. Music plays a key part in Walls's special time to herself. "There is nothing that will put me in a better mood faster than when my favorite song comes on. The Beatles are my go-to band when I need a little pick-me-up," says Walls. Once she has the right music playing, Walls can do anything! One of her favorite ways to spend her me time is running. "Running is great for my physical and mental well-being. It allows me to 'reset my clock' and get myself together emotionally," explains Walls. On a rainy day when the weather keeps Walls stuck indoors, journaling helps her keep her thoughts on track. "Journaling is like therapy for me. It helps me relieve my stresses after a long day," says Walls. Walls feels her absolute best after completing simple tasks. The sense of accomplishment she feels is a great stress reliever as well. Walls insists that everyone needs some me time to stay sane. "It's important to truly take care of your mind and body," says Walls. "Time to yourself makes a big impact on how you feel about the other parts of your daily life."
