The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea. 
~Isak Dinesen

I have always lived within an hour of some large body of water, be it ocean, sea, or lake. Most of the time it has been within 10 minutes or just a quick look out the window.  In times of stress, I'm drawn to the water, which calms and soothes me like nothing else.

Since moving to Macau I've found myself mainly calm and relaxed, despite being presented with a dozen very stressful situations on a daily basis. I'm pretty sure the fact that we live on a tiny island with the view above has everything to do with that.

The weather is cooling. The humidity is dropping. My clothes aren't soaked in sweat after every outing. Maybe just every other outing. A new season approaches.
