Relaxation. I know how. I even took classes directed towards it. I have led an entire class in meditation, very relaxing. The problem is in the execution. I find it hard to relax when I look around and see so many things that need to be done. Laundry, dishes, vacuum, putting toys away, painting the trim – in every room, fixing the shower head, clearing out the garage, fixing the light above the stairs & over my bed
I am lucky that sewing can be very relaxing for me. Almost Zen when I am in a groove.
Reading is always a good one. That’s pretty much where I turn when the sewing goes from Zen to Arrrgggghhh!
And finally – television. That can go beyond relax to veg. Not necessarily a bad thing, especially now that Chuck, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Ugly Betty, CSI (the original) and Bones are back. OK – so the TV wins lots of times. But rarely is it a solo activity.
