If you are anything like me, you enjoy getting away from everything and just having some me time. I work hard, sometimes I have no time to do anything, or at least it feels like it. I just want to get out with my best friend or just have some quiet time.
One thing that I like to do is to sit down and read a magazine from cover to cover. Once I start reading it takes me away and I don’t think about the bad day or bad week that I’ve had. It gives me something else to focus on. I like to read People magazine, In Touch, or something like that.
Another activity that I enjoy is going to the casino once a month with my best friend Brenda. I call this my blowing off steam and getting out of town time. It’s nice to get away from the house for a couple hours on my day off. We have so much fun when we go. I call it our girl time, we get away from our husbands for a short time. We only take between thirty to thirty-five dollars apiece, and yes it’s noisy in the casino but who cares!! The blinking lights, the colors, and all the sounds from the slot machines are very cool.
Going shopping or window shopping can also be very relaxing. Even if you don’t spend a nickel you’ve hopefully taken your time looking at clothes or makeup and it’s relaxed you. Unless I’m in a hurry, it takes my mind off other things.
Okay, some of you may not agree with this one. Taking a walk alone or with your husband can be a great idea. Yes, with your husband, if you don’t intend to argue, this can be a wonderful time for the both of you. Holding hands and walking together and bonding with each other can be fantastic. Include the dog if you can. It’s great exercise for all of you. It’s a wonderful way to unwind.
Sometimes when I’ve had a hard day or feel stressed out, I’ll turn on my radio. Hopefully, one of my favorite songs will be on and I can let go and just dance and sing. This is also wonderful exercise and you feel toned afterwards. I always try to bend and stretch.
I truly hope my tips have assisted you at least a little bit.
