Do you chill out often or do you find it hard to relax?

Lately I find it hard to chill out, my job never ends, lol, being a full time mum with 3 kids aged 12, 3 years and 3 month old baby. Even when I was working, teaching it was even harder then to find time to chill out, always on the run. When I do get time to chill out though I like to come chat on mylot or play the guitar, sing, chat on the phone to friends or have a nice bubble bath. My mum I don't think I have ever seen her chill, when she is not at work, she is always doing something around the house. She spends most of her time cooking or cleaning her house. Don't think I ever see her chill out much at all, think she has fogotten how, lol. How about you do you chill out often or are you one of these people that can never sit down and relax? How do you like to chill out, I am guessing one way is to come here on Mylot?

Hi Kiran-am I glad my days of running around after my two are over am glad to hearyou are getting on with your guitar that is very therapeutic and so is singing -now my way of chilling out is a bit too much of it...yes I come on mylot as much as poss but I love to just sit in silence and just spend time on my own-I have never really mixed with people on my estate but recently have met a really nice lady who spends time on her own and goes nowhere so now I spend a little time with her and she got me the job I have in the pub she works but we also go out together-the other way I love to chill out is going to my spiritual meetings and in the beginning of July will going to a das workshop with a famous medium David Wells he was on the programme Most Haunted anything that is spiritual is my way of chilling out too-your friend littleowl

Hello littleowl - I like the way you chill out, sounds like you have a very peaceful and relaxing life. Sometimes I enjoy sitting in silence too, although that is very rare for me in my household. Wow your spiritual workshop sounds very intriguing, I would be interested to hear how that goes, you should post a discussion on it after you have been. Have a great day, chill out lots and enjoy your peace and quiet.

I always relax and even nap after work. I work almost every day now. It is hard to relax whenever I have to go to school. Right? I spend lots of time cleaning. I watch tv a lot. I pray a lot constantly.

I am glad you take time out to relax especially if you are working nearly everyday. TV is good way to zone out and not really think about anything and kick back. Have a great day, put your feet up!

i consider myself a bit of a workaholic sometimes...and i'm always rushing around to do something. some of my friends keep on insisting that i chill out and take a step back once in a while.. and then i found myLot. this place has given me a nice reason for now to just chill out once in a while

i love to chill out. there is nothing more relaxing place in the house than to rest. when i don't have much work to be done, i could usually be found in my room, reading something or just taking a nap.
