What helps you relax?
23 Jan 07
I like to curl up with some nice music (Runrig or Loreena McKennitt) and either stitch or read. I can't go for a nice long bath as if I do I can't get out again as I seize up and it is so painful so I have have nice baths but no longer than 10 minutes (not really super relaxing) I find baking helps me relax as well but not with my DD (enjoyable but 5 yr olds and kitchens harly make for relaxation)

Oh man! A nice hot shower! No kids being loud. Not dogs growling and harrassing each other. No phone ringing. Wait...no kids asking me a million questions from different directions! LOL But that never happens. So I will settle for a nice hot shower and hopefully 20 minutes of no one knocking on the door. But I also have one thing that relaxes me after my kids go to bed. I read. I stay up reading with only the sounds of the house or an occasional child talking in their sleep. When I am done reading, I will climb in bed and push play on my mediation cd. Once that cd starts playing, I am relaxed enough to go to sleep. Ahhh! Nice!
