Forgotten How To Relax

face's woman

Has this ever happened to you? You work and work and work and when you finally take a day off, you don’t know what to do with yourself.

My office closed Monday, so I took off Friday to make a 4-day weekend. But now that Friday is here, I find myself stressing about how best to use my time. It’s not often I get the house to myself.

Do I take a nap on the couch? Or will I feel guilty if I waste my day bumming around?

Do I run errands? Or will I feel like I misused my time off if I do something productive?

Do I watch TV? Read a book? Exercise? Write? Get a pedicure? Walk on the beach? Sit in my yard and have a glass of wine?

I’ve forgotten how to relax.

  1. Two words: Naked. Yoga.

  2. Amen! My inability to relax is so bad that I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that I sleepwalk.

  3. May I suggest a bath?
    Or I just unroll my yoga mat, lie down on it, and the rest just falls into place!
