I got home from work, checked my snail mail, and saw that I had a Netflix DVD waiting for me. As soon as I stepped into my apartment, a debate began in my head…start making a proper dinner right away vs. put What Happens in Vegas in the DVD player, plop your butt on the couch, and relax. Can you guess which argument won?!?!?!
If you guessed being lazy and plopping myself on the couch, you guessed right! Yes, I switched things up a little by taking a Friday night ritual and turning it into a Tuesday night treat! I’m living life on the wild side!!! LOL!
Healthy living is not just about eating nutritious foods and exercising until the sweat drips into your eyes…there’s another component that entails relaxing, giving yourself a break, and enjoying the small things in life. So, tonight, my friends, I gave myself a night off from making a proper dinner, I changed into my PJs, and I enjoyed a simple, sweet romantic comedy. And I couldn’t be happier!!!
Other ways I “turn off” and just be:
- Call a good friend and chat it up
- Read a good (non-work related) book
- Shopping (sometimes this stresses me out, so I have to be careful) 🙂
- Naps <- this is when I literally turn off
- Bubble baths
What kinds of activities allow you to “turn off” and just be?
