We all have those days; you wake up and every-single-thing feels like a slap in the face. Yes, you know what I am talking about.
Everybody has different ways of relaxing. People often told me meditation was a wonderful thing to do when you are stressed. The last thing I want to do when I am stressed is meditate, I mean, seriously? Please do not get me wrong, I love to meditate but not under stressful circumstances.
Here are five things that help me get through moments of stress:
1) I go for a run.
It works every time.I sweat, I mentally curse a little, then I am a brand new person.(Can this count as meditation?)
2) I watch a movie.
If I am feeling like a potato-couch, I dive in my sofa and watch a movie. (Not a horror one obviously.)
3) I make myself some tea.
There is something about tea that soothes me.
4) I cook.
I go to the kitchen and make something yummy. It brightens my mood right away.
5) I put my favorite classical music playlist.
Since the ballet days I fell in love with this genre. It has been scientifically proven that classical music is good for relaxing.
Sometimes I do more than one of these at the same time…
What do you guys do to relax?
