Relaxing Sunday morning... ?

How do you relax ..  ? and unwind.... ?   I expect  ...   If you're like me, you probably  have several different methods, and it depends on how stressed you are. .. or ..  fed up... and how much time and space you have,  to do something about it... All my  relaxation and de stressing is done by  doing something physical... I like to walk our dog, read , watch tv,  do some colouring, or a bit of jewelry making, or cooking or baking  ... and even ironing....  or.... on here , my lotting lol I think it's  strange,  that to help calm the mind, most of us do something physical, that does not require much thought... it's  just as well most of us can multi task and do two things at once... that way if you're like me ...you can do the physical thing, and... meditate and think about de stressing  or relaxing, or just freewheeling ... which is letting your mind wander wherever it likes... past reminisces, happy ones of course..., or, daydream about  future happy   events. I've  tried being still, and doing yoga / meditation ...  but I can't  seem to relax in the stillness... can you... ? Any way...., I hope you enjoy your sunday. The collage photos are mine ... some of the things I like to do, photography, walking, jewelery making, and colouring ....

I am jobless. Not a good situation. It causes me much stress! However, my "work" or call it my favorite pastime, is Mylot! Here I find you, people who are definitely better than my relatives! I often leave the house with my mother. She's the only person that she listens to me. Dear Susan, you have to know that unfortunately I have serious problems!

Like you my relaxation activities depend on time and space. Since I am a home-body I do love to do things right here at home, baking, cooking, or just sitting outside and relaxing. What kind of a dog is that in your collage, it looks so much like our son's dog, Ellie. I'll try to add her photo, see if you notice a resemblance.

@sueznewz2 Adorable! Ellie is an Aussie Doodle, so part Australian Shepperd and part poodle. Your dog has straighter hair, whereas Ellie (which is short for Eleanor) has the curly hair from the poodle genes.

Love your collage. I relax in many different ways. Meditation if I am really stressed. Music if I am calm. I also have a medication I can take when I need it to help me relax.

I like your photo collage, are those butterfly earrings one of your creation? Very nice. I cannot stand still and relax. I need to do something. Ironing is something I like, but also painting, gardening or baking.

On weekends! I relax after I am done with the chores that I have to do. And when I relax, I would take a bath first , then i would lay donw in bed while I myLot like now, using my iPad. Or i would play my game on my mobile while in bed.

That's a lovely collage. And I noticed the likeness between Julia's dog and yours. I guess it's the colour and the way their hair falls over their face. They are both lovely looking dogs.

I found it so quiet here yesterday with the power off. That was my major stressor. And not having light kind of cut down on what I could do physically. At work we do a lot of physical things and it does help both students and staff be calm and do our work. Other helpful things are warm showers or baths and pampering type grooming activity, like using a paraffin bath for my hands or doing my nails.

I can relax by being still if I am on the laptop otherwise I agree, it is more relaxing to be active.

I love your collage, its all beautiful. I am rarely windup, now in my 70's I do what I want to do and not much other. I do go to the WMCA daily for some aerobics in the water.. I also find coming to mylot is restful too.
