Relaxing is something that I have had to learn to do over the years as parent. It isn’t easy for me to stop and smell the roses.
It has taken me forever to find something that relaxes and takes my attention away from all of the things that need to get done at any given moment in time.
Actually, it is not one thing that I have found…it is several things…the beach, a view of the water, yoga, knitting, breathing are a few of my favorite things.
It is hard to find a favorite thing while I am in my own home in suburban Chicago….I do not have a water view…but I do have my breath, a yoga mat and knitting needles filled with unfinished sweaters, scarves and hats. It is finding the discipline to get off the treadmill of life and relax a bit.
How many of you have this same situation?…
What do you do to carve out a few minutes of peace and quiet?
What are some of the relaxing things you enjoy?
Do you have a favorite picture that you imagine when you want to go somewhere to relax?
