What are the best things you guys do to relax? Given a chance to go for at least one week to take a leave from the busy corporate world, what would you do? On my part, if i'm lucky enough i will spend my week with my family in a beach exclusive for us.

I only want my computer in my lap and my house empty and that is enough to give me relaxation.

If I had the money for a nice vacation I would like to go to a spa or a nice tropical place where I could relax on the beach all day, but I can't afford things like that so usually I read to relax I love to curl up with my soft body pillow a blanket and read in bed. Watching tv can relax me to because it takes my mind of my stresses for a bit and can make me laugh.

Hi, if I had the money I would like to spend the week at a resort where there is a private beach with my family just lounging outside & feeling the breeze or going barefoot in the sand along the beach side... But since I don't have that luxury or money, just being with my family during the weekend spending our day at the beach & having family time with no thought of work, but just enjoying each other's company...

Thanks you forr remember me.Huhm, relaxx, i will sleep as much as i could, then listen music, go shopping although i don't buy anything , watch movie alone ( I like it).

My days at work get pretty busy and stressful. It would even go late into the evening some days. I would be so tired and exhausted by the time I get back home. That's when I need to have a way to relax and get rid of the stresses. My favorite way is to listen to my favorite classical music. I have a collection of CDs of classical music. It is so enchanting and relaxing to listen to them. I also enjoy listening to classical music of other countries and cultures.

In day to day life, I find that things like crocheting or painting helps me relax. If I could do whatever I wanted on vacation to help me relax, I think I'd opt for either a week of lounging, reading and swimming at some beautiful tropical beach or a week of camping somewhere secluded and away from people in general. But I also find basic everyday activities like cooking very relaxing. My mom always knows when I've had a bad day because the usual meat and veg. dinner is replaced by something gourmet and impossible to pronounce. LOL

Given the chance I might go on holiday. I might go on the beach somewhere with my husband, or something like that. It would certainly be nice to get away on holiday. It's nice to dream about it.

I relax by putting my headphones on, laying back, and listening to relaxing music. I vibe out to a little bit of ambient, classical, and binaural tones. Music like that helps to recharge your proverbial batteries.

I think that I would love to go on holiday too, if money and work permit. However on more simple terms I feel relaxed at the end of the day by looking upon the day's work and achievements and relaxing in front of the tv watchign a movie with my family. Then, going to bed in winter and feeling the warmth of the bedsheets and quilts is so wonderful :) I also relax a great deal if I can spend some time on my own on the pc while my child is asleep. Little things I believe can help you feel fulfilled and relaxed without having to spend too much money after all.
