A change of scenery can do wonders for kicking your stress level to the curb.
I know this because after just one night away, for a local staycation family getaway, Rocket commented on how “relaxed” I seemed.
Which of course means that I was anything BUT relaxed in recent days. Or recent weeks. Or months.
I can’t wait to share about our fabulous trip to the Gaylord National Harbor in the coming days, but for today, it is the little things that I am going to focus on. The little things that when added up create a new found relaxation that is simply…transformative.
Little things like….
Putting on a soft bath robe while drinking a glass of wine (or champagne!).
Watching House Hunters International in the wee hours of the night.
Watching your child as they stare in awe at a fountain display.
Seeing boats on the water outside your window when you wake up.
Reading the Sunday newspaper without looking at the clock thinking about where you need to be or what else you should be doing.
Gardening with the family for an entire afternoon.
Realizing you are only THREE weeks away from being able to workout again. (well ok, almost three weeks. Three weeks and two days is close right?)
Little things. That when combined make all the difference.
What little things have helped you relax lately?
