Relaxing Sunday morning... ?
October 22, 2017 5:10am CST
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.

@Juliaacv thanks Julia... that's a nice strong mix in Ellie tooyes our little chap, we call him bosun, as my friend was in the navy for many years... looks quite different with short hair...but we start to let it grow a bit after christmas, for our winter...which is very mild compared to everyone elses, but our summers are very hot ...soo you can still feel a bit chilly sometimes, but he looks cut with long or short hair ...lol
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.

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.
