I made myself a cup of green tea, and grabbed a recent magazine that came in the mail. I made sure to find a quiet spot in the house.
Then, with my comfortable slippers on, I put up my feet for 15 minutes. I even enjoyed my kitty snoring nearby!
The time went fast, but for me on this day, it was just enough. I hope that if you are still in the midst of your Christmas shopping that you take some time each day to decompress. Do something relaxing just for you. You deserve it!
Turns on my time wasn't quite a peaceful as planned...the fertilizer company stopped by at this same time with their motorized spreader! I also noticed that while these magazines are festive looking, they can make me feel a bit stressed looking at the PERFECT pictures. You might find reading a book or closing your eyes to be more relaxing.
Do you take time to relax when times are stressful?
