Then there's just the craziness of life. I've been able to buy a house with the help of my parents and they should be breaking ground within the next week and a half to two weeks. Then it should be built in 6! I'm trying to find a permanent job. And of course there are always little things like cooking dinner and running errands.
Life's crazy... which I'm guessing goes for a lot of people.
So how do we relax? There definitely needs to be some balance in our lives and so we need to get a break from everything. Here are the ways I have come to relax:
- Stretching- It's good for your muscles, it's good for you mind. You can get a few minutes or longer just to yourself by going into your favorite spot and working out some of those knots. With the cooler temperatures I've been thinking about moving my stretching outside so I can keep getting fresh air.
- Lazy Days- I've been having days were I just sit on the couch and really don't move. This is my day and I plan on relaxing. Usually I watch some of my favorite movies, get a nap in, and just completely not care about doing anything. It really works well when I've already cooked for that day and can just throw in some left overs for dinner.
- Relaxing Activity- Even if I'm watching TV, I like to be doing something. So I have different activities that are mind-numbing and relaxing. I'm either writing something, anything, on my computer or I'm cross-stitching. These activities even let me feel like I've accomplished something even though I've just been relaxing. I shared the picture of the cross-stitch I finished before the Disneyland Half Marathon and here's the one I finished yesterday
