How do you relax after a long day?

I spent most of today out and about at the Mall. By the time we got home all I wanted to do was put my feet up. Instead I decided to make a regular girlie night of it. I'm a HUGE fan of Lush products andI got a new Bubble Bar from then today, so I ran a bath using that and the bathroom filled with the scent of Toffee and Chocolate. Ten minutes later, wearing a blueberry face mask, I sank into a pile of bubbles and hot water and did absolutely nothing for the next 30 minutes. When I got out I felt refreshed and energized. Right now I feel like I could do anything. What do you do to relax after a hard or long tiring day?

I too love having nice bubble baths at the end of the day to relax and unwind. I especially love Lush baths, but also love other pamperimg product too. It also helps me to get to sleep too. I don't just consider having a bath a way of getting clean, that seems to me to just be a beneficial extra, lol!

I TOTALLY agree with you. My mom always wondered why I stayed in the bath so long. I didn't bother trying to explain to her that soaking let all my stresses soak away and refreshed me. I too love Lush Products - although my partner isn't so keen about the dent its made in his wallet recently LOL. I've just bought one of the Lush range of soaps for the first time - called Sexy Peel, and I have to tell you, I'm going to move into my bath permanently LOL. Thanks for the response.

May sound odd for a bloke to do, but I like to run a nice hot bath, fill it with bubbles, Radox is my preferred bubble bath, muscle soak, put some gentle music on in the background and have a glass of sherry and some chocolate, and lay back and relax, the mobile switched off and no one else at home to spoil my relaxation.

You know what, people tease me about it all the time and think it is silly but even at my age, I love science fiction. It just does it for me, I guess something similar to meditating. It puts me in the zone whether it is a Trek, Farscape, Battlestar, Star Gate, whatever. I find them very relaxing.

When I come home, I turn on my computer and listen to the world news on the BBC on http://www.bbcworldservice.com and maybe whatever program is on there at the time. When I'm through with the BBC I turn on music from my media player, read my e-mail, Mylot, or read a book.

I like to be on mylot to relax. I also like to read a book. Reading makes me sleepy and takes me to another place. Sometimes if I had a really long day I will take a nice hot bath. I'll check out those Lush products online and see if I would like them. Sounds like they have nice products.

Well I will come home make a coffee then come on here and just relax. Or I will sit on the Settee and watch a bit of TV before I come on here. I find it easy to relax coming on here.

Seriously, nothing makes a girl feel better and more well cared for then spending the time on herself making it a night of relaxation. I love all the smelly products and herbal products that either stimiulate and envigorate or relax. I use a lot of herbal things like lavender, mint and green tea. Soaking in a hot tub or even just taking a long hot shower with great smelling things can make you a whole new woman! Then slathering on some great smelling lotions, putting your hair up and relaxing with a good movie or a good book can truly make my day seem wonderful in the end!

Music is the best source of relaxation for me . After a long day it is always music . But before that a nice shower , yoga exercises really help me a lot . And Bird(both types) watching through my lovely windows is what makes me relax . Sometimes it is my Harmonica which helps me to relax to a level equvilaent to heaven .

A good book does it for me.All I do is lie down switch on some soft music and read.When my eyes give in I close the book and enjoy the music.Before I realise it,I am in the dreamland already.Hey,I've started browsing Mylot for relaxation ,too.I go through the jokes or some friend's posts and once I am done,I am ready to face another day.I love it when it rains ,too.I love to go out and get wet,lol.

There are a few things I like to do. One of them is baths, and I take one almost every night lol. But I've never done the face mask thing; I should try that! I also like to go out with friends, however I doubt that would be considered relaxing, more like fun lol. And lastly, I like to curl up with a good book. I usually read in the bath tub lol.

Here in the Philippines, they say it's bad to take a bath when you're tired so I would have to wait a good 2 hours before soaking in a bath. I just sit on a chair and watch tv, or lay in bed to relax.

most part of my working days are long with a minimum of eight hours till twelve hours per day. When i am off i need to stay in quiet and try to relax me. Sometimes i go out with my dog he is funny and a good companion i have good time with him, or I just watch sports or a movie on tv, there are many ways to relax yourself

Taking a bath with aromatheraphy is a good choice. After that, I drink cappucino, watch TV for about 1 hour then go to bed. Sleep is the best way to relax. You'll forget mess-up things for the day and get ready for new day.
