Sorry for the title, grew up in the 80s, I couldn't help it! Years ago, relaxing was something that came very easily. Too easy actually, I was quite lazy.
Then along came children.
Now, I don't find it easy to relax, AT ALL.
It isnt as easy for my brain to turn off.
There is always things to do. I feel like I need (or should) to be doing something, the majority of the time.
Things that people do to relax, such as going to a spa or for a massage just irritate me. It feels like such a waste of time.
A few years ago, my husbands aunt taught me how to crochet, one of the many things I am so grateful to her for.
It does make me relax, and also do something productive.
To make something that is used, and enjoyed. I love it.
What do you do to help you relax?
