What is Relaxation to you?

Happy Sunday!  How has yours been?  Mine has been very relaxing! Still having trouble looking at the calendar and seeing how close it is to the end of September.  Not only is time going too fast, but the weather is more like August! It  was in the mid to high 80’s today.  My husband says perhaps we will have Summer in the Fall and Fall in the Winter and then Spring. 🙂  Do you see how anxious he is to shovel snow again?

When you think of relaxing what does it mean to you?   What do you find relaxing?   Yes, I am sure naps rank up there for lots of us!

I love curling up with a good book and shutting out the world, or with my journal and writing out my heart,  blogging of course would fit in there too.  Walking my dogs and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.

I don’t always have to be alone though in order to relax.   Going on outings with just my husband and I definitely ranks high.  As does going on outings with the family and being with my family, including my parents and sisters.

Ranking right up there at the top would also be chatting with friends far and near.  Face to face is definitely the best way, but chatting and bantering back and forth by text and email can be fun and relaxing as well.

Hoping you had a relaxing weekend and that you are ready for the week ahead!   I think the following animals are in a relaxation mode, what do you think?

  1. I love that kitten sleeping on its back! I’m not relaxing much lately. I was just gone for the weekend with the only goal being to relax and came back majorly stressed. 😦 I’m hoping to shake this stuff really fast because it’s driving me crazy!!! 🙂


  2. I can not remember relaxing very often during my gainfully employed years. Retirement is definitely more relaxing! Books have always been my way to escape into relaxation mode, as I become so totally immersed in whatever I’m reading. Family time is also an enjoyably relaxing adventure. Adorable animal pictures, they really understand the art of relaxation. Thank-you!


  3. I love reading a good book. One that keeps drawing me back to it. I’m not a big napper unless it is dark, rainy, and cool enough for an afghan. 🙂 My grandkids come for a weekly visit, and I always enjoy that. Relaxing is personal isn’t it? And, it’s something different to the Introvert versus the Extrovert. 🙂 Good conversation.
