Tuesday QOTD

Going off the post about stress and wedding plannig, what are some things you do to relax? There are a lot of us getting married in June and I know I personally would enjoy some tips on relaxation.

Re: Tuesday QOTD

  • Take a hot shower or bubble bath
    Go for a run/walk
    Take a nap
    Get a massage or facial
    Clean the house (I feel more productive if the house is clean)
  • I work out.  It's the best stress reliever for me.

  • Lately, a nice bath has been my go-to relaxer.  Depending on the nature of my anxiety, I do different things:

    Read something for FUN. (rare treat during the semester!)
    Crossword puzzle
    Bake
    Quality time with the pets
    I only have them out in the winter, but watching a snow globe is very calming for me (especially the kind you wind so it plays a tune).
    Look at photo albums and scrapbooks
    This is a new one for me, but watch The Golden Girls.
    Good quality chocolate.  Lindt or Giardelli something you can really savor

  • Cleaning has been where I've been taking out my stress. We've been trying to do more things to stop working on the to-do list. Playing games, going on dates ets. I wish I liked working out! Right now it's a necessary evil, but I'm hoping soon it'll be a stress reliever!

  • I usually watch something funny on TV with DH while eating candy or chocolate.

    I have another stress-reliever as well, but it won't do much good for those of you waiting for the wedding night, LOL.

    Oh my gosh, me too! It instantly brings my mood up and relaxes me every time. :)

    But also:
    baths (which I miss SO much - we have no bathtub in this house :P)
    mindless knitting/crocheting
    sleeping

    I do tend to eat junk as well, but I'm working on curbing that impulse because it's making me gain wegiht!
  • Hang out with friends.

    Eat chocolate.

    Read.

    Exercise.

    Climb a tree. :)
