My fulltime job takes many hours a day, sometimes late into the night too, depending on how the business goes. So, by the time I get back home, I just have a couple of hours only before I am really ready to go to sleep. Those hours are the opportunity for relaxation. My favorite way for relaxation is listening to classical music, Johan Strauss, Bach, Chopin, and more. The weekends give me the chance to go walking and jogging. Those are my other favorite ways for relaxation, again depending on the weather conditions ofcourse. How about for you ? What is your favorite way for relaxation ?

Chopin takes my breath away. I usually watch a good film to relax. My favorites are either action or a good drama.

So you like a comedic drama? Or a romantic comedy? If so, rent Impromtu. It is a comedy/drama about Chopin and George Sand. It is brillant. it has many of Chopin's pieces in it.

Just, I want to get good sleep. If I get this then I feel rest from all types of hurdles. It is my favourite way of relaxation at all.

I like to go shopping and walking to relax. I read books,watch movies ,go to the beach and write to relax. Cooking my hobby helps me relax too. Lately I have been cooking healthy meals.

Yes, it would be very relaxing while doing things one enjoys doing. So, cooking is one thing you enjoy ! That's excellent.

I love to meditate. I light a few scented candles and burn incense. The whole sensory pleasure relaxes my body and the meditation does a great job relaxing my mind. I try to repeat this routine everyday, as I believe that a relaxed body and mind brings many benefits to my life. I realized sometime ago that I am more focused on the tasks that are at hand, I can think better and my interactions with people are much more pleasant.

That is wonderful ! I practise "yoga" meditation too. As you very rightly said, it is good for the mind and for body, very relaxing and clenses the mind. I do it every evening, atleast for thirty minutes. Have a nice day !

My favorite way to relax at night is to exercise while watching TV, then after that I jump on the laptop and do whatever comes to mind.

Whenever I'm so stressed out and needs to relax, I usually have a long walk outside with my ipod on for the music. I walk in the park near our home and I usually take pictures of it also. But when I feel like just staying at home, I just listen to music with a good book in hand and a cup of coffee by my side. I'll read until a fall asleep.

Hi, greenline! My favorites are walking on the track at Dillon Park. And I like to stroll my daughter in the stroller at the park. I like to listen to the birds chirping and the flowers shining in the sun. I also like to listen to Orchestera music. I like to go the library to check out some books. I like to stay in the library for an hour or two. I like to just sit still and breathe deeply and imagine myself in a paradise where the atmosphere is calm and cool.

My way to relax it to listen to my music of slipknot, korn, SOAD, and other rock or metal bands. I also like to go for a walk to the beach or to the cemetery.

Hi, haven't done any reading these days which is my favorite way of relaxation. In fact, i have bought 2 books which i haven't touched yet. I have been caught up in so many things that i can't even find any time to relax. But i do hope that after this month i could get back on track again and find a way to get back to reading.

Dear friend, I would like to have good sleep and listening to music while sleeping. May be just to watch movies, but mostly I would listen to songs and sleep.

For me it's a quiet house with me on my own no one else to disturb me, and to take the time to have a long, relaxing hot bath with music in the background, my favourite choice of music is Enya her soothing voice helps me to totally relax as I close my eyes and soak in the bath, it's heaven and it relieves stress as well as muscle tension and I clear my mind. I find water relaxing in any context, jacuzzi or even quite simply walking along the ocean's edge.

My favorite way to relax is either to watch a good movie with a bowl of popcorn and a drink. Or just reading a good book where you can't put it down and you don't want the book to end.

My favorite way for relaxation is computer games, online surfing the web, going out together with friends or dining out together with loved one and listening soft music. There are so many ways but I think it depends on your likes and dislikes too...

The best way for me to relax is to take a nice warm bubble bath, followed my a lotion body massage( if wife will do it, not very often), followed by slipping into silk boxers and watch TV or get on PC.

everytime i go home from work specially when it is out of town, my wife makes sure that when i arrive she always have something cold for me to drink. it can be ice tea, fruit juices or cola. we will talk for a while then i will take a bath, after that she will give me a body massage or foot massage. that is very relaxing for me. while massaging we will still be talking and our child is there with us jumping on the bed har har har
