I was exhausted when I arrived home due to many things that needs to be finished by Friday. Because of that, I just stayed in my room and open my phone to participate here in mylot. Yes, mylot makes me release my stress too. Too many tasks have been making me unhappy. While alone in my room, my sister and my nephew talk to me of some simple things and it makes me forget papers at work. After that, my boyfriend called telling me I need to have a break and hoping we can go on a trip by next month. Those simple conversations lift my spirit. It feels good that I have my loved ones who care for me. Indeed talking to them makes me happy and participating here makes me forget my burdens too. How about you? What is it that makes you smile after a very busy day?

@annierose,A long evening walk boosts my spirits after a tiring day's work.I go to the hillock amidst a dense,but small forest at the outskirts of our town every evening and enjoy wandering there for half an hour.This makes me happy and re energised once again.

Well, walking is good. I remember my friend when he saw me very tired. He then, invited me for a walk outside. Unfortunately, I do not feel like walking so I just smile at him and we just chat.

@annierose Going on long evening walks has been an indispensable part of my routine for years.I follow it irrespective of weather conditions.

@else34 It must be very challenging to do it if there is a strong typhoon or it is very cold or it is very hot? I can only do long walks if it is cold and gloomy.

I finished working at 6pm last night but I was home by 4pm yesterday. I only stayed in the office for 30 minutes to check if my secretary has done the job i asked her to. I was happy that I was free all night, I did spend a few minutes here but didn't stay too long as I wanted to lay in bed and try to sleep early.

It is believed that office works are much easier to do than working in a university or school. In the office, a person just need to work from 8AM to 5PM while those working in the schools do not end their task at their work. Their home also becomes an extension of the school or university. Really--no rest at all.

@annierose right. I'm fortunate i own most of my time. I can go to the office whenever I want to or when there's an emergency only. when I do yoga, I cancel my classes as well.

We're on the same boat. The loads of work the whole day is stressful but myLot tends to be a place to lessen my stress. I don't get to visit facebook because of this.

Same here. I do not visit facebook much. I love it more when I stay here and participate in the discussions.

@annierose This is far way better than facebook. No bashers and no bragging.

Sounds relaxing. Feet on the table while the fan is on and you also watch your favorite TV show.

I have been hearing moms and dads keep on telling how happy they are having their kids. I say so because their kids are always the topics in the discussion. I am happy you are enjoying also the company of your children. They must be very lucky to have a parent like you.

It is difficult for me to sleep when I know I have many things to do. I keep on thinking about those things and it makes me turn and toss on bed.

Being with my husband and children makes me very happy. Also being able to come here and talk about my day is nice too. =)

Yes. I feel relax when I chat with my family since I spend most of my time at work. My long distance boyfriend also finds way to chat with me even he is busy. It is so nice how he can make me smile by chatting with me about our future trips together. At this moment, I just finished my first task and I am happy because I can unwind here inbMylot.

For me, when I tired from hard work entire day, I will feel relax and happy when I see my children happy and healthy, and then we make some simple joke or see my little child who doing funny action, where it makes me laugh...
