I was sitting at my desk this evening trying to catch up with stuff (i.e. the nearly 900 emails I have been neglecting--and yes most of them were garbage, but still. . .) and thinking about everything I have to do this weekend, wishing my husband was home from work to help put the boys to bed, thinking about what a tough week this has been health-wise (and money wise--three doctor's office visit co-pays?! Ouch.) when I realized that the tension I was feeling had turned my shoulders into bricks. Yes. Bricks.
Time to unwind.
Step 1: Make sure all children are in their beds once and for all.
Step 2: Don pajamas.
Step 3: Try out new lavender essential oil I treated myself to. It's supposed to help you relax.
Step 4: Do some yoga.
Step 5: Flop down on the couch with a glass of cold water (with a little lemon) and a bowl of vegetable munchies and put on a movie--something girly like "A Room with a View" or "Enchanted April".
Step 6: The laundry and kitchen floor will still be waiting tomorrow morning. Try not to think about them too much.
Relaxing at the end of a long day. There's nothing quite like it.
How do you unwind?
